Double Donations in December: Standing Up Against Trump’s Hate
Donald Trump’s bigoted attack on the diversity of our communities, including the bullying of immigrants and Muslim-Americans, was abhorrent during the election, and it will be disgraceful if he continues this behavior in the White House. His first staffing decisions show that he wants to build an administration that will use the power of the federal government to deliver on those threats.
CREDO believes it is incumbent on all of us to stand up and defend those threatened by Trump. That is why we decided to select groups standing up against Trump’s hate for one of the slates we are funding in our special December donations election.
This month, instead of donating our typical monthly contribution of $150,000, we’ll be doubling our donation to over $300,000. And instead of three groups, you’ll be able to vote for three issue slates, each comprised of five nonprofits, to fund a total of 15 groups. These organizations are small grassroots groups, meaning your vote and the contribution it represents will go even further.
