If you would you like to Create a new Community Project, please read on. What kind of Community Project would you like to create to help your community? Is it local? Is it elsewhere in the United States? Is it an International Community Project?

Community Projects are used to build something that is helpful to the community. Maybe it is a new playground for abused children? Maybe it is a new Dog Run for an animal sanctuary? Maybe it is a Community Garden to be set up in a food desert? Maybe it is creating an “Adopt a Grandparent” program that helps to pair kids with willing senior citizens whose listening ears offer the children or teens extra emotional support? Maybe it is a Fundraising Event for your school or nonprofit?

Do you have a Community Project that you would like to request the community’s help in creating? Join with others to build something in your community that Solves a Social Problem or Helps the Environment.

Questions to Ask yourself before deciding if a Community Project is right for you and/or your group:

Does the Community Project I am proposing help to solve a Social or Environmental problem?

Does the community benefit from the completion of this Community Project?

If the answer is “Yes” to any of the questions above, then you are in the right place! To Create a Community Project Create a Project Application Form–Click Here! All projects use the same application form. If you would like Step by step instructions view How to Create a Project–Click Here!

What Community Project would you like to request the community’s help in completing? Specifically, what type of help do you need to support your Community Project that helps to solve a Social or Environmental problem? Propose a Community Project and let your community know what they can do to help make your project a success! Thanks and Good Luck!

Examples of Community Projects:

Animal Rescue Group: A local animal rescue needs a new dog run for their rescued dogs. They can propose a Community Project and request their community to help them find or purchase the chain link kennel panels, 2×4 wood, nails, etc. along with an architect or engineer to help them to design it. They can also request specialized volunteer help like carpenters or welders. If the Animal Rescue is a nonprofit organization, they can also request donations to fund the project. We will link to their website’s donation page. We will post the entire project on CommunityCause.org This is a FREE service that we provide to the nonprofit and 100% of the money goes directly to fund their Community Project.

Community Garden: A local neighborhood would like to create a community garden. They can propose a Community Project and request their community to help them find or purchase the tools, planters, seed, plants, etc. that they need to create this project. They can request expertise from Master gardeners or others who have created a community garden. They can request specific types of volunteer help on specific days.

State Park Clean Up Park staff could request community help with a state park clean up day. They could request donations of the plastic bags and/or tools that they will need along with the specific number of volunteers and the specific types of expertise those volunteers will need.

Thank you for wanting to create a Community Project that helps individuals in your community!
