We have a responsibility to our community and our donors and work hard to ensure long-term sustainability of the organization.
Our work is supported by community grants, churches, and fundraisers, of course. But, the largest portion of our funding comes in donations from individuals and families. Folks send checks, donate through their employers (who often match their donations), or drop donations into our donation box at the store. Many folks find it convenient to donate right here, through our web site. You can even set up an automatic monthly donation, if you like.
Common Ground is a community-based nonprofit, sharing items between neighbors. We don't spend money for inventory like a traditional store, so our budget is very efficient, focusing on operations and supplies.
