Common Ground is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and depends on donations to fulfill our mission of service. Our budget for FY2009 is $1.44 million dollars and 84% of that amount goes directly to providing a comprehensive range of no-cost programs and services.

Economic hardship impacts our clients and we already see a growing need for emergency support and services.  As this year of economic uncertainty unfolds, foundation and government resources may be cut and – now more than ever – individual donor support is critical to our success. 

Common Ground’s goals may seem modest when compared to large organizations, but our mission and service area are no smaller.  We need to raise $210,000 from individual donors this year, a 44% increase from last year.  To do this, we still need hundreds of new donors to join our cause, and need to find at least 20 new donors to join our Circle of Empowerment.

If you haven’t already, please donate now.

We hope also that you will share our appreciation and gratitude to the major public, foundation, corporate and faith-based organizations that have become institutional funders and to the founding members of Common Ground.
