Our Donors

We are a nonprofit that only exists because of the generosity of our supporters.

Since our founding, donations grew from less than $3,000 in 2013, to over $46,096 in 2015. The Ashland Community Resource Center, with which we partner with ACCESS, was founded with a two-year $100,000 grant from the city of Ashland. The people we serve are also benefiting from:

  • Two $750 grants from Ashland Food Co Op for in-kind donations
  • $10,000 Grant from the Leightman-Maxey Foundation to assist in developing a Job Development Program
  • $10,000 Grant from the Carpenter Foundation to increase our ACRC hours of operations$50,000 Grant from the City to assist in expanding the ACRC Building
  • $4,000 Grant from the Ashland Rotary to support the shower/laundry trailer
  • $2,000 Grant from Washington Federal
  • $5.000 Capacity Building Grant from the Ford Family Foundation

And we run on more than dollars. Warm clothing and nutritious snacks are often donated and these “in kind” donations, as we call them, were valued at more than $68,894 in 2015.
