Members of the New Start Society will receive: quarterly progress reports from Thrive DC leadership; special invitations to events; access to annual strategy planning sessions; and special recognition in Thrive DC’s annual report. Join online by making a single donation of $1,000 or more or a recurring monthly donation of $83 or more.

Give in the name of a friend or loved one
If you are looking for a special way to honor a friend or remember a loved one, please consider a tribute or memorial donation to Thrive DC.  This lovely gesture will have a truly meaningful impact.
