Donor Recognition

We are so grateful for the individual donors, corporations, and foundations who help us empower people to transform neighborhoods. Their contributions allow us to create a thriving, connected community where people are valued and talents are multiplied; where neighborhood families have access to safe, affordable housing and healthy food; and where youth are empowered through reading and the creative arts.

Healthy Neighborhoods Campaign

Thank you to all of the generous donors who have helped us make progess toward our $1.4 million goal for the Healthy Neighborhoods Campaign, which will bring a new community grocery store and housing opportunities to the Time Check neighborhood. Visit the Healthy Neighborhoods page for more information and to see the campaign lead donors list.
