The Yerdle Fund was established in 2015 to support impact-worthy causes our community cares about. We donate Yerdle Dollars and a shipping stipend to Cause Leaders so they can “shop” for needed items on Yerdle.
In the last year, over 130 Yerdle community members donated over 66,000 Yerdle Dollars to support 20 causes. We are enormously proud of this accomplishment and are pleased to announce our newest call for causes for the Yerdle Fund.
This round of causes begins on Friday, April 15. Causes will fall into one of 5 categories -- that need items which are frequently and easily found on Yerdle. Please apply if you are affiliated with any of the following types of causes.
Literacy and Education: great for schools, education programs and libraries. People can Yerdle school supplies, books, media, and office supplies
Animals and Shelters: please apply if you need pre-loved towels, blankets, stuffed animals and some pet equipment, but not cleaning supplies or food
Child and Teen Welfare: great for shelters and programs needing pre-owned clothing and shoes
Professional Clothing: for "back to work" or training/interviewing programs needing professional attire and supplies
Formalwear: please apply if you work with an organization that gives prom dresses to young people, or wedding attire to any people
Applications for our three cause slots must be received by Thursday, April 7. If selected, your cause will receive 2500 Yerdle Dollars and a $500 stipend for Yerdle shipping, service fees & bundling fees to use from April 15 through June 10, 2016.
We are so pleased to be able to support causes the Yerdle community cares about.
