Without people like you, we couldn’t provide affordable housing and services for 13,000 people across Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin. Especially in the midst of a pandemic and community unrest, thanks for supporting CommonBond residents and our mission to provide affordable housing through your philanthropy. Thanks for believing in potential. And thank you for taking action.
With so many folks in our community facing poverty, it can feel like an impossible challenge to overcome. Yet we believe when everyone participates in finding better tomorrows, we will create lasting change. When communities come together, we all win. Thank you for considering CommonBond as a way to support affordable housing through philanthropy throughout Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa.
