At Taproot Foundation, we power collaboration that connects communities and drives social change. But we can’t do it alone. With your generous contribution, you can help play an important role strengthening our work and the many social change organizations we serve.  When you support Taproot, the value and impact you provide is exponentially greater than the dollar amount you give. 

Top 3 Reasons to Donate to Taproot

  1. More Bang for Your Buck: Taproot is constantly working to evolve and improve our programs that can more effectively serve more nonprofits driving change in our communities. Donating to Taproot is a sure way to easily and conveniently support a myriad of impactful programs for nonprofit organizations across the country.
  2. Giving Back to Communities, Large and Small: Nonprofits big and small are affecting change. Taproot works with organizations on a local, national, and even global level. Giving to us means we will have the resources to connect with local organizations and beyond. The result? Nonprofits can better help their target communities.
  3. Help Lead a Movement: By uniting the nonprofit and for-profit world, we work to bring out the best in both sectors. The cross-pollination between the two is redefining how we think about pro bono services. When you support Taproot, you can help foster innovations that can revolutionize the way we serve our communities, expanding access to resources and tools for all sectors. 

Your support creates greater capacity among social change organizations which we consider “investment insurance” in that social change organization’s future. There’s a multiplier effect to our work, and it can start with your donation.
