When you donate to Fourth & Hope your contribution goes toward providing food and shelter 365 days a year for those in need in Woodland and Yolo County. Any amount you give is appreciated. Just $20 provides a night of shelter and food for one person.

Last year in 2021, 50 people were placed in permanent supportive or stable housing through our program. 280 people received overnight emergency shelter services including restrooms, showers, laundry, three meals a day, mail, phone, and case management. 238 people received supportive services through our street outreach and day services. 50,000 meals were served to shelter clients and anyone in need of food.

With your support, YOU are changing and saving lives. Because of YOU, people experiencing homelessness get a second chance.

THE DONOR BILL OF RIGHTS

Philanthropy is based on voluntary action for the common good. It is a tradition of giving and sharing that is primary to the quality of life. To assure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public, and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in the not-for-profit organizations and causes they are asked to support, we declare that all donors have these rights:

I. To be informed of the organization’s mission, of the way the organization intends to use donated resources, and of its capacity to use donations effectively for their intended purposes.

II. To be informed of the identity of those serving on the organization’s governing board, and to expect the board to exercise prudent judgment in its stewardship responsibilities.

III. To have access to the organization’s most recent financial statements.

IV. To be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given.

V. To receive appropriate acknowledgment and recognition.

VI. To be assured that information about their donation is handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law.

VII. To expect that all relationships with individuals representing organizations of interest to the donor will be professional in nature.

VIII. To be informed whether those seeking donations are volunteers, employees of the organization or hired solicitors.

IX. To have the opportunity for their names to be deleted from mailing lists that an organization may intend to share.
