Charity Tuesday: Modest Needs

Hello Everyone,

As we all know, spotlighting charities and worthwhile causes is important to SR. 

As a group, Elli, Coco, Sere and I are also dedicated to promoting these endeavors. Therefore, we are happy to launch a new weekly series of posts in order to take a more in-depth look at the various charitable organizations highlighted by SR. You can find a complete list of these charities on our blog by clicking on the "About the Charities" header.

We hope you will find the information in these posts informative and educational.  If you have a particular cause that is close to your heart or you have personal experiences with any of the charities we spotlight, please feel free to contact us about it.

Take Care,


Modest Needs

Mission Statement:

At Modest Needs, we work to promote the self-sufficiency of the 'working poor' - the hard-working but low-income individuals and families that conventional philanthropy has otherwise forgotten.

This cause is quite unique in that a potential donor can literally read through pages of individual grant requests. Many times as donors, we are not necessarily aware of how our contributions are being allocated once we've given to a particular organization. But with Modest Needs a donor can select specific projects to fund. This provides a very personal touch for the donor, and as a result, transforms the mundane online donation experience into a something a bit more special.

Many individuals and families find themselves in a daily struggle for survival. Modest Needs provides a place for people to seek assistance for any number of emergencies. Whether it involves seeking funds for car repair or assistance with rent or help with unexpected medical bills, Modest Needs can offer help to those who are in desperate need of resources. Whether you need help or whether you have the ability to help others in need, you should take a few moments to familiarize yourself with this website and bookmark it for future reference.

You can visit the website to browse applications, enroll as a donor, read testimonials from those who have benefited from the charity, refer candidates to the site and also to seek answers to any questions you may have about how the charity operates. 

You can follow Modest Needs on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. You may also sign up for email newsletter updates (something I did when I was researching this post).
