We showcase a variety of community projects you can support, from helping a local school stock up on supplies to growing a neighborhood garden that provides access to healthy food.
Collective action powers every campaign we feature and unites you with enough supporters to accomplish amazing things that couldn’t be done alone.
With a little effort, you can make a big difference in your neighborhood. Projects you support will directly affect the schools, services, and streets of your community.
