CR netWORK was started by a group of people with roots in westside neighborhoods, who see opportunities to positively impact the lives of area youth. We seek like-minded people to donate their time, skills, and monetary contributions. To become a member of the CR netWORK Giving Circle, the minimum level of giving is $20 per month. Membership means that you will have one vote in where resources are directed. You will receive communications and status reports on projects that are in queue, as well as ones that are completed. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to get involved in committees, as well as project planning and execution. Basically, membership can be what you want it to be. We also accept one time donations, which are greatly appreciated.
Why the name CR netWORK?:
“CR” is for Cedar Rapids. The capitalized “WORK” stands for West Of the River Kids. The word “River” in the acronym is additionally significant in that the group was established in the year of the flood. It is important to note the group was not formed because of the flood. The need was there before and is only greater now. The integration of “net” in “netWORK” describes the reality that this group’s strength will be drawn from a strong network of people as well as their talents and resources. We are a non-profit with 501(c)(3) status with the IRS so all donations are fully tax deductible.
