Donate Today


We believe in the power of partnerships, working together towards a common goal. That goal could be as narrow as obtaining funding for a specific intervention or as broad as trying to improve the overall quality of life for pregnant and/or parenting young women after leaving the system. We look to individuals, businesses, and other non-profit organizations to partner alongside us to help make a positive impact on these young women. If you’re interested in partnering with The BEcome Project, please contact us today.

Personal Volunteer. We are looking for volunteers that can assist with important areas such as photography, graphic design, organizing, interior design, speakers, and other specialty areas supporting the young women directly or the project overall.

Group Volunteering. Ideal for organizations or business’ that would like to participate in a special project such as furnishing a room(s) of a young woman’s apartment, giving a new mom the essentials needed for her new baby for a month, or supporting an outreach activity where the young woman gives back to the local community. We can also help you design and execute a customized project that aligns with your company's interests while fulfilling a need for The BEcome Project.

Sharing your talents/skills/abilities. Are you good at project management, organizing, meal planning, networking, cooking, maintaining a car? Do you know how to sew? Can you teach or tutor in a foreign language? These are just a few ways to support the project.

Organize a fund-raiser. Every community service organization needs monetary donations, but you don’t have to open your wallet to make a difference. You can volunteer by organizing a fund-raiser for The BEcome Project. By putting together a charitable raffle, walkathon, race, or other community event, you can make an impact by donating something just as valuable as money: your time.
