For over 20 years Community Shares has worked to resolve the root causes of social inequality and injustice affecting our region and our individual communities with collective action – ensuring a safe, equitable, and just future for our region. We do this by hosting workplace giving campaigns where employees make tax-deductible charitable donations to the cause of their choice.

We thank the METRO community for joining other worksites across our region who support front-line nonprofits. Every year with their pledges, METRO employees help shape and build a stronger, inclusive, and healthier region beyond their Departments.
