Support Bridges' 2019 Year-End Appeal

Thank you for your past support; we ask you to renew it today - with more we can do more.

2019 has been a year filled with many accomplishments for Bridges. We have grown our operations in the Dominican Republic by 500% and continue our important work in Nicaragua without visiting volunteers (for now). We continue to evolve our programs to meet the current needs of our partner communities.

This year, our team, along with our dedicated volunteers and generous donors:

  • Built 35 homes, 21 sanitary latrines and biodigesters, and broke ground on a new school
  • Mentored and hosted workshops for our 77 scholarship students and 199 youth committee members
  • Screened 542 community members for chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes
  • Advised local credit committees in lending over $86,000 in micro-loans, directly benefiting 2,023 people

Together we don't just build structures and give scholarships; we inspire change and cultivate the skills of community leaders and residents that help end the cycle of poverty.

Your gift will transform a family's life. Please be as generous as you can and support Bridges to Community today!

*All funds raised through our year-end appeal support Bridges' community development programs, where the need is most.
