How You Can Help

Make a donation to our General Fund – directed to the area of greatest need!

Thank you for making a donation to CCRC. Your support offers hope.

Your generous donation is:

  • funding services that save relationships
  • helping people secure and keep their housing
  • bringing people’s finances under control

Your support is the trigger for a moment in someone’s life, when things start to make a turn for the better.

We believe that access to affordable services has the power to improve a person’s wellbeing. Without your support, we couldn’t do this important work.
Your support meets others support to help thousands of people in Peterborough City & County live healthier, more dignified lives.

“Thank you” seems to not really capture all of this, but thank you, none the less.
