A fundraising campaign for Englewood Quality of Life Fund

Make an exponential difference

Spreading awareness is a great way to help support our cause.

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
