When most people think about the community of Englewood, they think of poverty, crime and hopelessness. However, there are committed residents working collectively to make a difference and recently completed a Quality-of-Life Plan for the community.
We are asking YOU to support the projects and early actions of this plan by donating to the Englewood Quality-of-Life Fund. Our goal is to raise $5,000 by May 31st! So any amount you can contribute would be helpful!
We plan to do the following with the monies raised -
- Award 5 current HS seniors an Englewood College Scholarship at $500 per student
- Award mini grants to block clubs of Englewood for upcoming block parties
- Award mini grants to the various Englewood Quality of Life Task Forces to support early action projects.
During our last fundraiser we was able to do the following -
- Award $5000 to the Ogden Park Vikings Junior Football Team
- Create Englewood Rising Billboards Throughout the Community
- Award 4 young victims who were shot in Englewood a donation to their college fund
