help us do more.

We have accomplished a lot, and we know that none of it would have happened without our community — businesses, community organizations, schools, area colleges and universities, volunteers — and donors like you. 

But, there is much more to be done. We know a whole lot of kids with unrealized potential, older adults who need community, and people of all ages who want to connect as a community. We're well on our way, but now we need your help.  

★ Make a gift of $100  (or more!) and be entered into a drawing for the chance to name a beautiful meeting room in the Brassworks building. ★ Any reasonable name will be accepted, but we reserve final approval to avoid naming shenanigans.


Other Ways to Help


Do you or your company have construction materials, fixtures, or furniture you’d consider donating or discounting? Your in-kind gifts help us stretch our budget. If you wonder if we could use what you have to offer, let’s talk. Email Jon to discuss your in-kind gift idea.


We count businesses – big and small – as important community partners. Whether you donate equipment or furnishings, make a gift, name a room, or host a fundraiser — you’re helping make an important, positive impact on our community. We’d love to talk with you about the possibilities. Email Jon to start the discussion.

Show Off Your Support

Fly an 8x18" Even Greater Good pennant to show your support! Put it in your yard, on your bike or stroller, in your community garden — anywhere you like where it will make a public statement. 

Pennants are available to pick up at the GCC front desk. If you've made a gift and would like us to deliver one to you, email

We'd love to see the pennants out in the community, email us a picture or post on Facebook #evengreatergood
