When people thrive, communities thrive. Jobs are just the beginning!

Every financial commitment means people can get to work putting poverty behind them while looking ahead to a meaningful job and the self-sufficiency that comes with it.

But the benefits go well beyond each person. Every dollar invested in Cara generates $5.97 over five years in social return on investment. This is the kind of math we can all get our heads around, especially when we know this ROI is backed by the beautiful power of hope to boot.

Discover More Ways to Give

Monthly Motivators

Recurring donations are a steady lifeline for us. They give us the mindshare to worry more about how to strengthen our services and less on how to fund them. More Monthly Motivators means more mission.


Matching Gift

Double or triple your financial gift to Cara Collective through your employer’s Matching Gifts Program. Check out our list of participating companies or reach out to your organization’s human resources team to inquire about a matching gift.


Gift Of Stock

Many of Cara Collective’s supporters make an annual charitable donation through a gift of stock. As you conduct your annual portfolio review, please keep that in mind. There can be tax benefits, and you’ll feel great knowing you are helping kick start someone’s new beginning.


Estate Planning

Many people choose to leave a legacy gift to Cara Collective so they can launch the careers of others with the legacy they leave behind. Cara would be honored to accept gifts from your will, life insurance policy, or retirement plans through The Thomas & Mary Owens Legacy Society.


Shop Our Wish List

Whether it is a portfolio for a job interview or hats to keep our Cleanslate workers warm in the winter, your purchase from our Amazon Wish List helps ready our participants for the road to employment.


Volunteer Your Time

One of our most valuable resources is time. By donating your time to help our Cara participants practice their interview skills, polish their resumes, and more, you’re helping to pave someone’s pathway out of poverty (and meeting some incredible people along the way).


Donate Clothing

A great professional outfit not only makes a great first impression, but it also gives our participants the boost of confidence they need to nail their job interview. The next time you’re cleaning out your closet, think of how that outfit can change someone’s life.
