$50,000 Goal

New donors, do you want to create new beginnings for homeless youth, trafficked youth, LGTBQIA2s+ youth, and men rebuilding their lives after being incarcerated? Now is the time to donate! Your donation today can unlock an additional $50,000 in funding for homeless & trafficked youth - when the need for shelter is at an all-time high. 

Your Donation Will Be Amplified by a Major Foundation! Your Donation Can Deliver $50,000 more in Funds.

The Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation will grant an additional $50,000 in funds to 180 Degrees if new donors come together to raise a baseline of $50,000 for them to match. This challenge is "All or Nothing". We must meet the baseline goal in order to receive the matching grant funds, and we hope you join us in rising to the challenge! 

You Choose. You can donate to our general fund above to allow funding to go where there is the greatest need, or you can browse programs below to select specific initiatives to support here at 180 Degrees.

About 180 Degrees.  BIPOC-led since 1973, 180 Degrees builds on 50+ years of racial equity advocacy to help children and adults break the destructive cycle of trauma created by poverty, racism, homelessness, and sexual exploitation.  

Mission. 180 Degrees creates safe spaces and services that honor each individual's healing journey. Over 1,000 youth, adults, and families access our emergency shelters, supportive housing, and community-based services

Give with Confidence. 180 Degrees meets the highest standards of non-profit transparency and accountability, earning Platinum seals of approval from Guidestar and Charities Review Council.

Your Impact.  When you give to 180 Degrees:

  • 350 homeless & trafficked youth under 18 receive safe Emergency Shelter through our network of regional shelters in St. Paul, Chanhassen, Rochester, and St. Cloud.  
  • 200 men exiting prison receive short-term housing and are connected to jobs, supportive housing, and ongoing support giving them a new start so that they can positively contribute to their communities.
  • 500 homeless youth (including youth experiencing sex trafficking),  families experiencing domestic violence, and children involved in the criminal justice system receive food, clothing, transportation, and structured support.  
  • 75% of our clients are BIPOC and 35% of youth in our emergency shelters identify as LGBTQ. Your gift provides support to people who experience historical and systemic barriers, putting them at higher risk for homelessness.
