The Cambridge Youth Council and the CRLS Black Student Union Raise Emergency Dollars
raised towards $10,000 goal
We are no longer accepting donations on this campaign, but there are other ways for you to support us today!
Starting on Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2022, January 17, the Cambridge Youth Council (CYC) and the Cambridge Rindge and Latin School Black Student Union (BSU) are raising money for Cambridge organizations working in the community in these challenging times. As the pandemic continues, these organizations are supporting unhoused communities and inspiring us with their steadfast commitment to Cambridge. Our goal is to raise $10,000 in community contributions by Monday, February 14th. Every dollar up to the $5,000 mark will be matched by the Teaching Philanthropy Fund at the Cambridge Community Foundation, Cambridge's local giving platform.
Funds collected will be equally distributed among the following organizations:
- Youth on Fire
- Y2Y Harvard Square Homeless Shelter
- On the Rise
- Transition House, Inc
- Food for Free
- Cambridge Family and Children’s Services
- Women's Center
- First Church Shelter
The Cambridge Community Foundation is honored to play a role in supporting these young leaders in our community. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Michal Rubin, VP of Development at: mrubin@Cambridgecf.org.
