We’re on a mission to grow the power of Community Bucket in the face of COVID-19
After a tough year of social distancing and getting through this pandemic together, there is no better time to keep the promise of Service Made Social alive!
When you donate to Community Bucket, you are contributing directly to causes in your local city and multiplying the impact of each dollar given. That’s because our work supports local nonprofit partners through volunteer hours paired with financial donations.
Right now, you can help us reach our goal of $10,000 by April 30th. This will help fund our programming costs – virtual and safely in-person – for the Summer months, including keeping our small staff employed to help drive our efforts forward. A donation as small as $21 will go along way as we rebuild in 2021.
Let’s impact where we live, together!
When we mobilize volunteers, the hours of good deeds add up to increased capacity for our nonprofit partners. In fact, every hour of service contributes around $24 in value to a nonprofit. On average, we aim to turn every $1 we spend on programming into $3 of impact. Not only that, we also donate money directly to our partners every month. The more you contribute, the more we can impact our communities!
Even with the changing realities of the post-pandemic world, we believe our work can help transform lives. People desire a way to support the causes around them, and we deliver this alongside an added benefit of meeting like-minded friends through shared acts of doing good.
Tax Information: Community Bucket is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. All donations are tax-deductible where allowed by law.
It’s simple: Your donation helps us create more events, which provides opportunities for more volunteers, which serves more local nonprofits, which builds our communities.
It takes more than kindness to run our organization, and to ensure stellar events and experiences for every volunteer. We have to cover the cost of supplies for every project, fund our operating costs like insurance and administrative fees, and most importantly, pay our small staff living wages to keep them well. As a new organization, we believe this is key to our success.
In addition to providing volunteers, we also make an effort to contribute financially to our local partner organizations. Therefore, a portion of your donation also goes directly back to the communities we serve.
Absolutely! If you think your company would be interested in supporting Community Bucket through a sponsorship, a donation, a company-specific volunteer event or even by helping spread the word about our events, we’d love an introduction. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and details, and we’ll promptly reply!
