It's hard to imagine our communities without the vital services nonprofits provide.

There's the youth center that gives kids a place to expand their minds challenging themselves to see new worlds; the women's organization that helps first-time moms learn to navigate parenting; the nonprofit combining theater with therapy to help children deal with issues of abuse and neglect; and thousands of others that provide services without which our communities would be crippled.

Yet only 1 in 10 nonprofits has the resources they need to serve our communities. By donating to Taproot Foundation, you can change this by helping nonprofits do the best job possible in serving our communities.

Thank for your considering an investment in the Taproot Foundation. You are making a difference in our communities.
