givingtuesdaypageThis year, on Tuesday, December 3, 2013, ERCPCP is taking part in a global call to action that will change the calendar and help make history. We are celebrating a day dedicated to giving — when charities, families, individuals, businesses, community centers, students, retailers and more will all come together for #GivingTuesday – a movement to celebrate giving and encourage more, better and smarter giving during the Holiday Season that we are proud to be part of.

#GivingTuesday will create a day of giving around the annual shopping and spending season –giving’s “opening day”. Leading up to December 3, the #GivingTuesday campaign will provide a platform for you to contribute to your community and the world to help make this season the biggest giving season yet!

We invite you to be part of this celebration. #GivingTuesday will show how the world can do much more with our wallets than just consume. Here’s what you can do to help make this initiative a success:

  1. Support ERCPCP on #GivingTuesday by going to our website and making a donation!
  2. Help us promote to spread the word about #GivingTuesday to your networks!  Here is some sample language for you:

Rise To Thrive_Logo_0703_BERCPCP has been selected as one of less than 90 charities that were invited to participate in the #RiseToThrive Charity Challenge.  The invitees were all organizations that are focused on building prosperity in our neighborhoods and helping individuals foster brighter futures for themselves and their families.  The campaign is a simple fundraising campaign where the more money we raise, the better.  Of course, we’re hoping to raise the most and here’s why: the organization that raises the most will receive an additional $25,000 grant to put towards their work.  Now that’s motivation! Our community needs this.

We need your support to make us successful with this challenge.

Help us to raise the most from September 10 – October 22, 2013.  If we win, we all win… every donation counts! With your support we can assist more low-income residents needing supportive services, transition more returning citizens back into the community with employment and stable housing, provide wraparound services to more juveniles who have been involved in the criminal justice system, and provide mentoring, resources and training opportunities to more at-risk youth through our gender based conferences.
