Since 1962, The Box Project has been working to help people living in America’s worst areas of rural poverty. We seek to alleviate the effects of poverty and increase mutual understanding through direct, people-to-people assistance. With the help of our referring agencies, we seek families who want to better themselves… by getting an education or better job skills, and by working on ways to improve their lives. Sponsors, in concert with The Box Project, provide support for the growth and success of recipient families, with the goal of alleviating
suffering and increasing self-sufficiency. All contributions to the Box Project are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
Mission: To encourage and enrich the lives of families and individuals living in poverty in rural America by establishing meaningful relationships, promoting education, and offering material aid.
The Box Project is a program of the Community Foundation of Northwest Mississippi, an IRS 501.c.3 approved public charity.
