Dear Potential Donor,
We are a group of teens from FUN(d): A Teen Giving Circle hosted at 4Front, based at the Owings Mills JCC of Greater Baltimore. During the program, we will learn about philanthropy and the grant-making process through a Jewish lens. We will have the unique experience of fundraising for those experiencing homelessness and then participating in a group allocation process. Through our process we will make grants to local organizations focusing on creating a community where stigmas are shattered, and everyone’s basic needs are met. We have decided to allocate the funds we raise to organizations supporting those experiencing homelessness. Homelessness and housing issues are prevalent in our community and together we can make a huge difference. Everyone deserves a safe, warm place to call home.
Your donation will be amplified when combined with that of others and will allow us, together, to make a bigger impact in the lives of those experiencing homelessness. Please consider donating any amount to our cause, as every dollar counts.
