You Make a Difference.

Even before the pandemic, nearly half of our community was struggling. 1 of 5 households were living in full blown poverty, and an additional 1 in 3 were teetering right above it.  

Today, individuals and families are recovering from the pandemic and rebuilding a better future because donors give generously. Together, we are building a stronger, more equitable community.  

How do your gifts translate into a stronger community? In several key ways:

  • Charitable gifts are channeled into grants for a network of certified partner agencies that address the landscape of changing needs in our community.
  • Donations help bring people together around shared goals and a vision for a reimagined future instead of a return to the past.
  • Donor support helps create programs and partnerships that focus on resilience, empowering individuals, building stronger communities, strengthening the resiliency of our safety net.
  • Generous donations are launching new, targeted initiatives to advance housing security, food security, and financial stability; advocating for needed legislative solutions at the local, state, and federal level; and mobilizing volunteers to make our community even stronger.

Thank you for your generosity, your partnership, and your commitment to building back a stronger, more equitable community for all.
