This is the third year that Band Together and United Way are partnering to support Triangle nonprofits working overtime to support our neighbors in need. With increases in housing costs making homes unaffordable for individuals and families experiencing poverty, the Mighty Giveback’s goal is to raise more than $1 million to help ensure that Triangle residents and families have a safe place to live and thrive. 10 Triangle nonprofits will be beneficiaries of these funds, including: CASA, Community Empowerment Fund, EMPOWERment Inc., Families Together, Habitat for Humanity of Durham, Habitat for Humanity of Orange County, Habitat for Humanity of Wake County, Hope Renovations, Housing for New Hope, and Passage Home.
“At United Way of the Greater Triangle, we are committed to our mission of eradicating poverty and increasing social mobility through the power of partnerships. The power of this partnership with Band Together, along with our incredible nonprofit leaders in the housing space, is that we can raise funds and awareness while harnessing the expertise and passion of community leaders that wake up thinking about this challenge every day,” said Eric Guckian, United Way of the Greater Triangle’s President and CEO. “Last year, United Way funding helped over 10,000 of our neighbors find homes that are safe and affordable. This year’s partnership has the potential to make exponential progress for one of our most stubborn community issues. We can do this if we do it together!”
Please join Band Together and United Way of the Greater Triangle in raising over $1 Million to support housing accessibility in the Triangle. Ticket sales, individual donations, and corporate sponsorships to the Mighty Giveback will directly support the most impactful nonprofits in the Triangle who are at the frontlines of our community’s housing crisis.
