Why Donate through The Sustainable Giving Campaign?
  • Trust: Our local nonprofit recipients are carefully vetted organizations creating efficient change. 

  • Impact: Our collective gift enables immediate programming and action we couldn't inspire individually.

  • Value: Administrative work for The Sustainable Giving Campaign is volunteered. All funds go directly to the nonprofit.

  • Ease: One online donation to a nonprofit, without being added to a mailing list, with no extra work. 

  • Intent: Setting aside funds to give annually is better than lump-sum and spontaneous donations. 

The Sustainable Giving Campaign hopes to promote sustainability in two ways: by funding local community-building and environmental work and by encouraging our donors to think about giving annually and regularly. Our hope is that our donors eventually consider giving a percentage of their annual income to nonprofit organizations every year. Giving a percentage of income helps people be more generous during good financial times and also allows people to feel less pressured when they don't have as much financially.
