“We are all affected by poverty. And we can all make a difference.” 

If you are look­ing to make a dif­fer­ence in poverty, con­sider sup­port­ing our work and part­ner­ing with us. Together, we can work to end the neg­a­tive stigma of poverty. CoAc­tive Con­nec­tions also works to improve out­comes out­comes for peo­ple expe­ri­enc­ing poverty through our train­ing and education.

How? Through edu­ca­tion, ser­vice providers and oth­ers who inter­act with peo­ple expe­ri­enc­ing poverty can improve their poli­cies and ser­vices to be more effec­tive. It is all about max­i­miz­ing under­stand­ing and potential.

Learn more about our work and donate today. Check out the video to hear from some folks on why they sup­port CoAc­tive Connections.

How will your dona­tion help? Poverty is the most neg­a­tive prej­u­dice reported, and our edu­ca­tion helps reduce the stigma attached to eco­nomic sta­tus, gives tools to improve ser­vices and poli­cies impact­ing peo­ple expe­ri­enc­ing poverty, and sup­ports inter­ac­tions with peo­ple expe­ri­enc­ing poverty in a dig­ni­fied and respect­ful man­ner. In addi­tion, your dona­tion is tax deductible.

Addi­tional Ways to Sup­port CoAc­tive Connections:
  • Use Good­search as your search engine (they donate about 1 cent for every search that you do).
  • Use Ama­zon­S­mile to pur­chase items, and des­ig­nate CoAc­tive Con­nec­tions as the non­profit you would like to sup­port! Ama­zon donates 0.5% of the price of your eli­gi­ble Ama­zon­S­mile pur­chases to the char­i­ta­ble orga­ni­za­tion of your choice. Ama­zon­S­mile is the same Ama­zon you know. Same prod­ucts, same prices, same service.
  • Shop online at your favorite stores through Good­shop (depend­ing on the store, a per­cent­age of your pur­chase goes toward sup­port­ing the non­profit of your choice).
  • Start your own crowd­funded fundraiser to sup­port CoAc­tive Con­nec­tions! We are already on Crow­drise, and you can use that plat­form to start your own fundraiser!
  • Volun­teer with us! We appre­ci­ate and look for­ward to your support!

With your sup­port, we are able to work toward our vision that no one will be treated dif­fer­ently because of their eco­nomic sta­tus. Your dona­tions are tax deductible and greatly appre­ci­ated. You can donate by click­ing “Donate” above. You can also mail dona­tions to: CoAc­tive Con­nec­tions P.O. Box 2094 Salem, OR 97308
