A Month of Simple Giving

A month-long community initiative to collect essential goods for our friends and neighbors who need it most.

What is a Month of Simple Giving?

Since 2009, donors, volunteers, local nonprofits, and community businesses have collecting money, clothing, and household goods to fill critical needs in our community.

Each year, over $30,000 worth of goods are shared with families who need them most right here in the Capital Region.

Together, we are building a community where everyone has access to basic essentials that improve their quality of life.

How can I get involved?

A Month of Simple Giving revolves around members of our community (like you!) forming teams and raising money or hosting collection drives to help and empower those who most need it. Get together with your friends, family, or coworkers and sign up for one of our limited scheduled events today.

Form a group.

Form a group with your friends, family, or coworkers. Together you'll be raising money, collecting essentials, and participating in one of our many scheduled giving events.


Raise $100.

We're asking each group to support the work we do by raising at least $100. This will help to fund Grassroot Givers' programs—from sharing clothing and housewares with families, to supporting literacy by increasing access to books in our community.
