Without the generosity of this community — the passionate people and organizations who donate time, talent, and treasure — we wouldn’t have the resources to address so many pressing issues facing Rochester today. Please consider supporting Causewave Community Partners. Your contribution is an investment in the wide range of causes we’re working on as part of the larger movement for a truly greater Rochester. 

"Albert Einstein once said that logic will get you from A to Z, but imagination will get you everywhere. Causewave Community Partners has proven that for decades—by coming up with creative solutions for our community’s toughest problems. I donate to the W. B. Potter Society not just because it is a tribute to their founder, but because I am proud to be a part of a group that uses its imagination and knows how to solve problems."

"I recently made a significant contribution to Causewave Community Partners, designating a portion to the Every Minute Matters campaign to improve early grade attendance. The donation was given in memory of my brother, T.J. who was an intelligent, good man with wonderful friends. But he died of illnesses resulting from ongoing substance abuse. T.J. lacked an essential element of hope—something money cannot buy. Here in the Greater Rochester area we are surrounded by tough problems and encounter many who lack hope. I donate to Causewave Community Partners because they are addressing these tough problems and I know I am investing in hope."
