We can't wait to see you on December 18th at Busboys and Poets (14th & V Streets NW). Together, we will raise money for six national non-profit progressive organizations that are on the front lines, fighting every day for equality, human rights, the environment, freedom, and inclusiveness including:
The American Civil Liberties Union
Southern Poverty Law Center
The Council on American-Islamic Relations
Natural Resource Defense Council
You can donate to each organization through Crowdrise or you may bring checks made out to the organizations to the event and we will collect those and send them to each organization. Sorry, but cash and credit cards will not be accepted.
A note on technical donation details: We are using the Crowdrise fundraising platform on the recommendation of the ACLU, which has said that this is a platform they endorse. It works through an organization called Network for Good, which is a BBB accredited donation service that our featured organizations verified is a legitimate organization that they endorse.
Your donation to a US-Based 501(c)3 charitable organization through CrowdRise is 100% tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. You'll automatically receive an email receipt that meets the IRS requirements for a record of your donation. Donations to personal fundraisers that aren't going to a US-Based 501(c)3 charitable organization are not tax deductible. Only donate to people you know and trust.
As with most services, Crowdrise/Network for Good charges a small fee to the NGOs for using their website. You have an option to pay this fee yourself, or not and thus pay no extra charge for your donation.
