Without the support of an orchestra of donors, who have provide large and small grants and individual contributions since 1993, there would be no Tutor/Mentor Connection and no Cabrini Connections.

We thank everyone who have made a contribution. Listed below are corporate and foundation donors who made gifts of $10,000 and above from 2005 and 2006.

Note: Finding consistent, flexible operating dollars is the most difficult challenge of any charity, including the Tutor/Mentor Connection and Cabrini Connections.  Please add your name to this list of donors. Send contributions to: Cabrini Connections Tutor/Mentor Connection, 800 W. Huron, Chicago, Il. 60622.


Write for a copy of our latested audited financial statements. Our annual report can be found in PDF format at the Cabrini Connections.net web site.

Fund Raising Resources for Tutor/Mentor Programs

INDEPENDENT SECTOR Endorses General Operating Support Grants as a preferred Funding Mechanism(Washington, DC, April 8, 2004)- INDEPENDENT SECTOR has endorsed recommendations from a group of nonprofit and philanthropic leaders that encourage foundations to give general operating support grants in order to provide the most flexible funding to their nonprofit partners.

Note:

If we can teach charities and donors to choose a cause and find an information portal, such as this, that shows the long-term work needed for a tutor/mentor program to help a youth to a career, then we can teach the donor to pick a charity based on where the need is greatest (map) and what organization is providing service in that zip code (Program Locator). once a donor gets to the few tutor/mentor program choices that exist in a zip code, it is up to the donor to determine how much he/wants to help, then write a check and send it to the organization. If an organization maintains a web site that shows why they are needed, where they are needed, where they operate and what services they provide, the donor should be able to choose between multiple organizations providing the same service in the same neighborhood. If your tutor/mentor program has a web site, you can put its link in the LINKS section of this web site. You can also email tutormentor2@earthlink.net to add it to the Program Locator database.
