The market is flooded right now, not only with asks from every local and global nonprofit, but with opportunities to give through SPUR...be it sponsoring one of the remaining 200 wish lists by Thursday, preparing food to be served Sunday at a shelter or your time to wrap gifts over the next week.

We recognize this, but cannot miss the opportunity to strengthen the foundation which makes all the work we do possible. Without support, there's no infrastructure. Without infrastructure, there's no impact. Help us meet our #GivingTuesday goal of 20 new monthly supporters and $4,000 across all gifts (monthly & one time). 

DOUBLE your gift! We are thrilled to share a local donor has stepped up to match each contribution to our #GivingTuesday campaign through midnight tonight, dollar for dollar, up to $4,000.

This is our last fundraising ask for the year, and only twice a year do we ask for undesignated (general) support. If you were planning to make a tax-deductible, year-end gift, or set up monthly recurring support, please consider doing so by midnight tonight. Help us reach our goal.

Learn more below, about how your financial partnership enables us to inspire, equip and mobilize individuals of all ages to take actions that positively impact neighbors and our communities.

With Gratitude,
