NeighborShare connects people who need help with people who want to help.
We do this by partnering with community heroes— case workers, social workers, etc. who are on the ground in communities —to identify pivotal needs of $400 or less that would otherwise go unmet. When local options have run out, we use our platform to connect those critical needs with our national community of donors who want to help.
- Empowerment. We know that the community heroes on the ground know their communities best, so our goal is to enable them to maximize their impact, not direct it.
- Dignity. The people we help are our neighbors. We treat each story, each community hero, and each partner organization with empathy and respect.
- Community. We believe that neighbors are everywhere and that humanity is at its best when we look out for each other. Today you’re helping someone—tomorrow you may need their help. We pay it back and we pay it forward.
- Transparency. Donors, community heroes, and partner organizations all know where money given to NeighborShare comes from and where it goes.
