Everything is better when you do it together.  Beginning on October 6th, The Refuge is partnering with The Columbus Foundation to provide those men graduating from The Refuge with a ‘launch package’ of functional, essential items to help them during their first month after graduation. 

The Columbus Foundation has invited The Refuge to participate in their Better Together program which seeks to raise $6,000 to help make this a reality.  The Columbus Foundation is going to be providing supplemental donations as we cross fundraising thresholds on the way to our goal.  Your gift can help us build these packages and any amount helps.  

How to Contribute

The Better Together Program is run by The Columbus Foundation and helps nonprofit organizations like The Refuge access top-of-the-line crowdfunding systems and an audience of caring people in Central Ohio.  If you want to help ensure Refuge graduates successfully launch their new lives, you can do so by clicking the link below.  You can also do so by going to The Columbus Foundation’s website and visiting their Better Together pages where The Refuge is featured.
