Give the Gift of Giving

As the holiday season approaches, we have a lot to be thankful for.  Our supporters have been the the sole reason 50+ children have received the support they need during non-traditional instruction (NTI) at our community learning hubs, and for that we are grateful. 


The pandemic has presented us with new challenges in providing our families with resources while working from home and dealing with financial hardships caused by COVID-19. Children, families, and our partner schools need your support more than they ever have. 

Make a gift by December 31st to help us increase the impact IWRBR has on the community. Because of you, we have been able to open and sustain two learning hubs. By helping us meet our year end fundraising goal of $10,000, we have the opportunity to open two additional sites in the Jacob and Russell neighborhoods for students who attend Semple, Byck, and Roosevelt Perry Elementary. The funds will be used to provide PPE, offer enrichment opportunities, and hire highly qualified site directors for each of the new sites. 


Your holiday gift makes a life-changing difference for so many IWRBR kids. Please read below to learn about four different ways you can help us meet our goal and provide essential services for families in need. Thank you for your continued support,
