TODAY'S ACTION ITEM:


Support PAVE's Fund for DC Families in order to ensure families have access to the resources and supports they NEED. This is the time for all of us to come together to make sure that those at the center of PAVE’s work -- parents and caregivers -- are taken care of so that they can best take care of their children.
 

#GiveLocalTogether: Support The Fund for DC Families!

PAVE is, and always has been, a family.


We #SquadUp to celebrate and show pride in our achievements together, and we hug each other tightly in moments of loss and pain.

Right now, we cannot hug all of the amazing parent leaders who give so much of themselves to this work -- but we can make sure that if their family is struggling right now, their needs are taken care of so that they can best take care of their children.


That is why we started the Fund for DC Families.

I COMMIT TO GIVE

So far, we've raised $40,000!


Since March 15th, PAVE has spent or committed over $22,500 in direct support to families on:
  • Groceries 
  • Chromebooks
  • School supplies
  • Critical mental health resources
Thanks to the generous support of the Walton Family Foundation, the Fund for DC Families is starting off strong with $40,000 and these initial expenses are covered!


But there's more work to do...


In order to continue this support over the next six months, we need to raise at least another $60,000 - for a total fund of $100,000.
TO GET THROUGH THE NEXT 6 MONTHS OF THE PANDEMIC AND ITS EFFECTS, $100,000 COULD PROVIDE:
  • Two weeks' worth of groceries for 125 families
  • 90 chromebooks to support distance learning
  • 600 school supply packs for DC students
  • 600 teletherapy sessions for parent leaders
  • And housing support for 25 families

This is where you come in.

COMMIT TODAY TO HELP US MEET OUR $100,000 GOAL!

On Tuesday, May 5th, PAVE is participating in the Catalogue for Philanthropy's #GiveLocalTogether campaign. We want to see as much love for our PAVE family on the 5th as possible!

When you commit to give on Tuesday, you are supporting a family that is in need -- a family that has dedicated hours of service to advocating not just for their children, but ALL children in DC. 

This money isn't for PAVE. It's not for our salaries, it's not for our benefits, and it's not for our operations. It’s for families who aren’t just worried about education: they're worried about their jobs, their health, and whether or not they can put food on the table.

Please #SquadUp with us in support of DC families, and give what you are able!
