Rise to 35: Our Common Unity

Update: Thanks to friends and supporters like you, we hit our campaign goal! Thank you!

For 35 years, Isles has been rising to the challenge of helping families become more self-reliant, and creating healthier communities in our region. We know that community challenges can be overcome by thoughtful, courageous people, working across the old boundaries of partisanship, ethnicity, religion, or zip code.  Isles channels the power of our common unity to help people build the lives they want for themselves.

It’s challenging work, and in this milestone year, your support is more important to us than ever. As political winds shift, Isles is focused on strengthening our services, and making sure that our community has the tools they need to rise to the challenges they face every day. We work together to keep our young adults out of the costly prison pipeline, save our youth from lead poisoning for life, train our workers to be financially stable, improve our health and budgets by supporting fresh food in the city, and the list goes on. Our common cause is our community.

Rise to the challenge with us. Starting today and ending on December 31st, Isles aims to raise $35,000 in online donations to fund the critical services we provide for families in our community. Your gift will help us continue the important work you can see highlighted in our 2016 Report.

All donations up to $10,000 will be matched by a generous donor who is committed to Isles’ mission. Double your impact today by donating online using the form below, and share the challenge with your friends on Facebook or Twitter. #Riseto35 #OurCommonUnity #Isles35th
