The Participation Project

Adopted by Community Resource Center in 2015, this established program equips nonprofits to effectively build inclusive, civic programs. The Participation Project partners with human service nonprofits to increase their capacity by providing guidance, training, and support to assist them in offering nonpartisan voter engagement efforts to their clients and community.

We believe in the power of the nonprofit vote to build an inclusive and just Colorado and are  thrilled to kickoff our 2019 nonpartisan voter engagement efforts.  The Participation Project  partners with human service nonprofits to increase their capacity by providing guidance, training, and support to assist them in offering nonpartisan voter engagement efforts to their clients and community.  We are very proud to highlight the work of our partners in the 2019 program and invite you to register or update your voter registration.

The Process

Engaging clients and community in elections is an important step in building the civic capacity of your nonprofit and community. Communities with higher rates of civic participation are more likely to volunteer, experience lower unemployment, and have better health outcomes.

CRC works directly with nonprofits to develop an action plan for their civic engagement efforts. CRC provides the necessary supports including training, materials, resources, and consistent communication to our partner organizations.

By providing civic engagement efforts to clients and community, nonprofit organizations may also increase their influence with elected officials and decision makers. This can help increase the overall effectiveness of advocacy efforts.
