It comes as no surprise to any of us when we hear someone say, "2020 has been quite a year." It has been. For each of us.
For Common Wealth Charlotte, it has been a year of dramatic increases in requests for counseling and income gap loans to cover basic living expenses in the wake of job layoffs and furloughs. Our annual report shows a similarly dramatic increase in our income. But, more than half of our donations this year were restricted loan capital, enabling us to serve individuals with the emergency funds they needed.
With your donation, we'll provide trauma-informed financial capability-building education and counseling, much of it for people affected directly by COVID-19. You can join the effort by clicking the link below. But if you find a nonprofit that resonates more with you, then make a donation to that organization. We understand--2020 is also a year of great need.
Thank you for your interest Common Wealth Charlotte. We wish you a safe and healthy 2021.
