The founding members of CR netWORK have close ties to the west side of Cedar Rapids and believe there is a need, even an untapped demand for this type of organization. We share in the opinion that rallying around unique needs of the west side communities could be a powerful conduit to achieve positive change. Additionally, being an unaffiliated charity, CR netWORK has the flexibility to give to individuals, families, daycare facilities, schools and so on.
CR netWORK also partners with local businesses for donated or discounted goods and services for use in projects as well as the administration of the organization. By leveraging these relationships, our hope is that the highest percentage of donations will go towards the youth projects and not into administrative costs. (Please note the CR netWORK Board is comprised solely of volunteers).
To become a member of the CR netWORK Giving Circle the minimum giving level is $20 per month. Membership means that you’ll have one vote in where resources are directed. You will receive communications and status reports on projects that are in queue as well as ones that are completed. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to get involved in committees as well as project planning and execution. Basically, membership can be what you want it to be. We also accept one time donations, which are greatly appreciated. Because the circle is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization, these donations are fully tax deductible. Please email us at email@example.com to get the ball rolling.
Thanks for your support.
