James (name changed for privacy) is a Senior at CPS high school, Rowe-Clark Math & Science Academy, and he needs help. The family’s gas will soon be shut off due to them not being able to pay the outstanding balance. We are requesting $250 just to keep the gas on so that they can start working out a payment plan.
You’ll receive a tax-deductible donation receipt from our donation processing partners at Our Change Foundation afterward. Goodsend will follow up with an update for you in regards to her story at the end of the month.
Every month, our donation partners at Goodsend award one lucky donor with a free prize. Previous giveaway items have included PS5’s, Venmo Cash Prizes, Starbucks gift cards, and more. This month’s giveaway item is a $100 Uber gift card! Make a donation via our Shop Giving Page this month to automatically enter. The winner will be announced on social media and notified directly via email, during the first week of April.
Who are we donating to via this page?
Our partners at Goodsend have set up and maintain this page on our behalf. Goodsend works with CPS schools, to facilitate donations directly to their low-income students and families in need. Each month, funds that are donated here are sent directly to the bank accounts of a new student and their family, in order to cover their emergency expenses.
Is my donation tax-deductible?
Yes, you will receive an emailed tax-deductible receipt via email after your donation processes.
Why does my receipt mention ‘Our Change Foundation’?
Our Change Foundation partners with Goodsend, to process donations on this page, and ensure that they are tax-deductible. Donations are processed by this organization, before being disbursed directly to the intended student recipients.
When does the recipient from this page receive my donation?
Donations are collected via this page and others in Goodsend’s local network, and then disbursed directly to the intended student or family by the end of each month. Look out for updates and thank you notes from Goodsend via email after they receive their funds.
