Thrive Annual Appeal

We're trying to raise $100k by the end of 2017. Help us continue our critical programs for local kids and families.
When we work together, even a little goes a long way. 
This year, thanks to a generous match grant, your donation will have 50% more power to help kids succeed! All new or increased donations (up to $37,000) will be matched by 50%!

Stacey mentored Jackson for one hour, every week. Jackson has transitioned from kid to adult with Stacey by his side. When asked about CAP, Jackson said:


"I feel more confident now. I am the Vice President of clubs, am comfortable speaking to large crowds, and I'm excited about my future. I attribute that confidence to Stacey."
