Support YCore & CommunityGrows Combat the Nutrition Deficit in San Francisco!
  Nov 25 2020 . San Francisco, CA, USA

YCore is a SF-based nonprofit dedicated to supporting community-based organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area.  YCore leverages and mobilizes young professionals to advance social impact by partnering with existing community-based organizations.   This winter, YCore is working with a record 15 community organizations including CommunityGrows!

CommunityGrows is a community-based organization that has served the inner city youth of SF for 26 years by cultivating healthy, accessible gardens and providing important nutrition and wellness education through in-person classes and internship programs.  Today, CommunityGrows serves over 1,200 youth each year through its interconnected programs: Educational Environment, Seed to Mouth cooking classes and the BEETS paid internship program.

This winter, YCore is partnering with CommunityGrows to build an internal data management platform and train the CG staff on how to use it.   Serving 1,200 youth a year, the CG team hasn't had the resources neccessary to focus on tracking their youth, volunteers, donations and impact!  Implementing a robust data management platform and training the staff will allow CommunityGrows to better track their own performance and make significant improvements across youth engagment, volunteer outreach, fundraising and grant writing. 

Your donation goes to support YCore and its mission to support the hardworking teams advancing social impact through San Francisco and the Bay Area.  Whether it's $25, $50 or $100, every dollar goes a a long way to our goal of getting more young professionals engaged with community service!
