What is Groundswell?
Groundswell is our collective group of monthly donors. In the same way that you need a swell to generate waves in the ocean, monthly donors are essential in our day to day operations. They allow us to provide consistent educational support, meals, rewards, and mentoring to kids year-round. Without them, we have no impact.
How much should I give?
We know that everyone is in a different financial situation, so we’ve broken our giving system down into multiple levels. With a range from only $10/month (the equivalent of about 2-3 coffees, one meal, or a month of a streaming service) up to $400/month, we want everyone to feel like they have a place they can plug in.
INTERESTED IN A DIFFERENT AMOUNT? HERE ARE SOME EXAMPLE COSTS.
$50 - Provides swimwear for 1 child
$120 - Provides 1 week of lunch for everyone
$800 - Covers 1 child’s full summer program
$15 - Provides tutoring for 1 child for a week
$60 - Allows 1 older kid to be employed as a tutor for 1 week
$240 - Provides a reward outing for 10 kids
