Community Donors

Almost 50% of our revenue comes from the generosity of our donors and funders. By joining our Community Donors, you’ll join hundreds of others who 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!
