  • Give Time
    • Volunteer. People choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. For some, it offers the chance to give something back to the community or make a difference to the people around them. For others, it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge.
  • Give Money
    • Donate to a nonprofit or community organization that has impacted your life.
    • Help your favorite nonprofit in a more hands-on way and start a fundraiser for them. Never hosted a fundraiser before? It’s as easy as telling a story about why this cause is important to you.
    • Payroll giving is a great way to give regular support to the causes you care about.

    • Sign an online petition, call an elected official, or advocate for a cause that matters to you.
    • Mobilize your neighbors to look for solutions to your local community issues such as homelessness, gang violence, food deserts, or mental health care.
