Community Donors

Our donors and funders provide about 50% of the revenue necessary to carry out our work in the Downtown Eastside. By joining our Community Donors, you’ll join thousands of other individuals who also believe in providing survival-supports to those who call the Downtown Eastside home, advocating for justice and equity for those who are oppressed, and providing sanctuary in the heart of our city. Please consider donating today!





($12.50 per month)



($25 per month)

All donations receive full tax receipts (unless otherwise noted), and gifts of $600+ or $50+ per month will be recognized for one year on our website, and gifts of $5,000 in our annual report.

Leadership Circle

The Leadership Circle is a group of philanthropists committed to sharing their resources to see real change in our communities. By making a significant gift today, you ensure we have the capacity to provide direct services while also addressing the systemic barriers our Downtown Eastside community members face everyday. You can become a part of the Leadership Circle at a level that is significant and meaningful to you and our community.











All donations receive full tax receipts and recognition in annual reports and websites. You will also receive an invitation to an annual donor reception.

Donations $25,000+ will have the opportunity for an annual luncheon with First United Executive Director and a community leader, invitations to in-person and online events, and behind-the-scenes opportunities to see the progress of the Redevelopment Capital Campaign.

We couldn’t do this important work without you. Thank you!
