Frey Family Foundation Match = Your Gift is Doubled

A Home is the Foundation for Everything in Life

We believe a home is the foundation for everything in life. CommonBond’s integrated approach – housing with services – changes lives and strengthens families and communities. Every year, CommonBond provides affordable housing and supportive services for 11,000 people. Nearly 2,800 of these residents are children.

In conjunction with a safe, stable home, our services include onsite academic programs for youth, as well as employment assistance, health and wellness programming, and community engagement opportunities for adults and seniors. This leads to youth who excel in school, adults who find employment and advance in their jobs, and older adults who live independently longer.

Your gift can help change lives and strengthen our communities!

The Frey Family Foundation recognizes the critical nature of CommonBond’s work and encourages you to invest in our work alongside them. Donations to CommonBond support our Advantage Services—which help over 11,000 residents meet their own goals for independence and stability.

Thanks to the generosity of the Frey Foundation, all gifts received though the end of 2017 will be matched dollar for dollar for donors in these groups:

Returning donors:

If you haven’t donated to CommonBond in the past 2 years, the Frey Family Foundation will match your returning gift—dollar for dollar—so your gift has double the impact.

Current Donors:

We appreciate your loyal support and partnership. If you give a gift to CommonBond that’s 10% above your largest historical gift, the Frey Family Foundation will match your gift, dollar for dollar.
