Your December impact will be felt throughout 2017
Due to the extraordinary nature of the November election, CREDO decided to do something a little different with our donations in December. We chose to double our monthly contribution to progressive nonprofits to $300,000. And instead of asking you to to vote to distribute the funding between three groups, we included 15 organizations focused on three issues areas that will be absolutely critical to fighting back against Trump’s dangerous agenda in 2017 and beyond:
- Advancing the movement for Black lives
- Fighting for climate justice
- Standing up against Trump’s hate
Tens of thousands of CREDO members voted and now the donations results are finally in. Check out how much each group received and learn how your votes and support are making a significant impact for these organizations in 2017.
