Give Where You Live
The fight against poverty starts in your own backyard.
Bellevue’s low-income children need your support now more than ever as local families continue to face the devastating economic impacts of COVID-19. Over the past year, we have seen food assistance requests increase by 50% and rental assistance requests triple.
To ensure Bellevue kids do not experience hunger or homelessness through the end of the school year, we must raise $1.5 million by June 30. We need your immediate help to raise the first $500,000 by April 15. Meeting this goal will ensure we provide grocery store food vouchers to 3,175 children at risk of hunger and that we don’t turn away any family at risk of homelessness.
Below are four ways to support Bellevue kids and inspire your network of friends to make an immediate positive impact with you:
1. Give Together
Rally your friends, family, and neighbors to join you in supporting Bellevue children in need by inviting them to support your personalized Give Where You Live fundraising page.
Creating a page and inviting friends to participate is easy. Every dollar raised will immediately provide food and housing support to Bellevue families.
2. Host a Virtual Gathering
Host your neighbors and friends for a virtual coffee, lunch, or happy hour gathering to create space for connecting and sharing about our community’s urgent needs.
Our team is available to help you plan and organize a successful gathering. Contact Kris@BellevueLifeSpring.org to learn more.

When children have their basic needs met, they are more likely to thrive and reach their fullest potential. Your investment in Bellevue’s low-income students creates better learning opportunities, a prepared workforce, and ultimately a stronger Bellevue.
