Donate to Our Cause

Your contributions fund the day-to-day operations of our programming. Gifts provide transportation to work for team members with jobs and those looking for employment as well as allow us to purchase vocational items needed such as steel-toed boots, hard hats, and reflective gear or non-skid shoes. They pay the cost of race entries for our team members, as the vast majority cannot otherwise afford to participate in these events—and team meals on special occasions. In addition, a portion of the funds is used to provide scholarships and tuition assistance to team members enrolled in college courses, adult education classes, vocational training or other educational programs to improve their occupational status. When funds permit, we provide assistance to participants in crisis or emergency situations – including shelter, immigration assistance, court costs, bill payment, transportation, childcare costs or other needs that arise. At times, we have been able to send children to summer camp or funded their participation in a sports program outside of RunningWorks, which furthers the mission of sport for change.

Donating is simple. Donate by clicking the button to the right.

Beyond any monetary contribution we are also always in need of donations of new and gently used running shoes, apparel, watches, sports bras, etc., as we work to end homelessness and shatter stigmas one stride at a time.
