What we do…

We help build relationships, community involvement, and citizen activism by connecting member groups, donors, and employers.

Member Organization League of Women Voters Education Fund

We are a one-stop shop for social and environmental change; each of the non-profits we fund helps create lasting change through grassroots action and advocacy. We are unique: Community Shares’ giving model is based on choice – the donor’s choice.

We give people the tools to act together to affect change on a systems level; working to eliminate the social, economic, cultural, and political barriers that keep people from fully participating in society.

We help to promote respect for the environment and its sustainability.

You can join us in supporting local social, economic, and environmental justice causes either as a donor, or by arranging giving through your workplace.
