Simply put, your financial support of Community Shares allows us to raise more money for our member organizations. Now more than ever, our community needs Community Shares’ member organizations to promote equality, challenge out-dated assumptions, stand up to injustice, and speak truth to power.
According to a September 2009 report of the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy (NCRP), every $1 invested in community organizing and advocacy brings $138 in benefits to Minnesota communities. Now that’s a solid investment! Community Shares needs your help to ensure the ongoing strength of this investment. As the NCRP report illustrates, every dollar matters, so please contribute to Community Shares today.
If these difficult times make donating a large one-time amount difficult, or if you prefer spreading your donation throughout an entire year, you can enroll in our Steady Change monthly donor plan. By giving automatically, you help Community Shares better anticipate revenues in a given year. You also reduce the amount of unwanted mail you receive, while helping us save on postage. Just consider the impact of your monthly investment!
To invest in the future of our community, go to our Donate Now page to make a one-time or start a monthly, tax deductible contribution to support Community Shares of Minnesota.
If you have questions or want to set up another regular donation, please contact our office.
Whatever its size, your gift makes a significant difference for the health of our local communities.
