You can help BACK@YOU fill even more backpacks for the homeless in 2015!

BACK@YOU is ready to take the next step in the effort to let our homeless neighbors know we care. But we need your help! Many resources that could help us better serve the homeless are available only to 501(c)3 tax-exempt organizations. That designation is our next goal, and you can get us there.

Today we launched a crowdsourcing campaign to raise money on GoFundMe. We hope to raise $500 to raise us from only a Missouri nonprofit to a federally recognized charity that can make an even greater difference in the lives of those living on the streets.  Those four numbers and one letter will let us buy bulk items on the wholesale market to fill backpacks for the homeless. It will allow you to make tax deductible donations to BACK@YOU. And it will give us access to fundraising resources for buying our comforting backpacks. And that’s just the beginning.

Please help us reach our goal. It doesn’t have to be a big donation. Every little bit helps. Even $2 will put us that much closer to reaching our goal. Small amounts add up when many people care. We are there for our homeless neighbors, and they matter to us. But saying we care isn’t enough; we must also act.

BACK@YOU has no overhead. That means we put 100% of the donations received toward our mission. That mission is carried out exclusively by volunteers working together to ensure that our homeless brothers and sisters know that we see them and we’ve got their backs. Once we receive 501(c)3 status, we will provide a tax receipt to every donor.
