You can support our work by making a tax-deductible donation. We have a fiscal sponsor through Open Collective, a platform that enables mutual aid groups like ours to raise, manage and spend money transparently.
How are monetary donations used?
- The majority of what we spend money on is immediate material aid for our unhoused community members. This includes items such as food, water, tents, sleeping bags, tarps, personal hygiene and medical supplies, harm reduction supplies, cell phones, dog food and other basic survival items.
- We organize call-to-action events responding to policies directly harming our unhoused community members, which usually requires us to print a lot of flyers and posters.
- Gas money for our volunteers who provide transportation.
- Approximately 5% of all donations goes to Open Collective for handling our banking, taxes, accounting, legal, liability, and making payments from you and our expenses transparent and open source.
We have assembled an Amazon Wishlist of our most requested items for those who wish to purchase specific items and speedline our ordering process.
We accept donations of gently used tents, sleeping bags and tarps. We inspect and sanitize items prior to delivery. Because our capacity is limited we only accept drop-offs at this time. If you are interested in donating something you think would be useful please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to coordinate.
