A Family Sponsor communicates directly with a family in need by writing letters, offering friendship and sending a box of basic need items about once a month. For someone who struggles to get by from day-to-day, just knowing their sponsor cares about them personally can have a dramatic, positive impact. Create a better tomorrow by making a difference today for someone living in rural poverty!
Back-to-School can be a challenging time for The Box Project families while they are on our waiting list for a long-term sponsor. How can you help a child have a great start to a new school year? The Box Project offers a one-time short-term opportunity to sponsor a family for Back-to-School. You can help a family with providing school supplies, uniforms or other items necessary to have a great start to a new school year. Schools begin classes in early August and we begin matching families in June and July. Help make a difference today for a student living in rural poverty!
The holidays are challenging for Box Project Families living in rural poverty. They are faced with the challenge of providing a special meal to celebrate the family’s traditions or making their child’s holiday dreams come true. You can help make these challenges not seem so large by sponsoring a family that is waiting for a long-term sponsor. Please consider making the winter holidays special for a family with this one-time short-term sponsorship. Family matches are made during October and November. Make the holidays special for a family living rural poverty!
Team and Corporate Members contribute annually but they do not sponsor a family. These members believe in the Box Project mission and recognize the need for financial support. A Team Member is encouraged to make an annual contribution in the amount of $100 or more and a Corporate Member is a business that is encouraged to make an annual contribution in the amount of $500 or more. Any amount committed annually is greatly appreciated. Make a difference by committing to sustain the Box Project mission with an annual donation!
Donors are friends who recognize the need to financially support the Box Project to sustain its mission but are not a sponsor, team or corporate member. Our V.I.P Friends are donors who give above $1,000 during a calendar year. All friends are critical to the Box Project’s success and your donation at any time in any amount is always appreciated. Make a difference today with a donation to help the Box Project continue its work with rural poverty!
Gifts to the Box Project Endowment are permanent, self-sustaining sources of funding. Endowment assets are invested to earn a market rate of return while keeping the principal intact to help sustain the future of The Box Project. Help sustain the Box Project’s mission with a donation to its Endowment.
Gifts of cash are the most popular way to give. However, you may also receive tax savings with other non-traditional giving such as gifts of stocks, bonds, mutual funds and other assets. Please check with your financial advisors for tax savings you may receive by donating to the Community Foundation of Northwest Mississippi designated for The Box Project.
