Our community has rallied around the principles of Invest 1,000 and is committed to ensuring that every family who has the desire to move out of poverty can transition to self-sufficiency.
IMPACT OUR WORK
Poverty is expensive – for the families living in poverty as well as for our community at large. The work of Invest 1,000 has proven successful, returning $16.23 in benefit to each impoverished family and our community for every $1 invested.
INVEST WITH OTHERS
The Invest 1,000 campaign focuses on building ongoing support from donors. Since our quiet internal launch, we have grown to almost 40 individuals pledging annual support for the program. We are now taking our campaign to the public.
The concept of Invest 1,000 is simple – we are asking people to donate $1,000 every year to support this work. That’s less than $84 per month, which many people can afford. But if that’s too much, please donate what you can. Every dollar makes a difference.
DONATE TO FAMILY FOUNDATIONS
Our 1,000 in 1,000 program helps the whole community by helping individuals.
The model focuses on the “working poor.” These are individuals and families who are in the workplace, yet struggling to make ends meet and get ahead. Using a research-based approach, we help families build the 9 Pivotal Assets to move into a life of self-sufficiency.
