Business Partnership

Partnership is an ongoing commitment to alleviate poverty in Wake County beyond just providing relief today, but ensuring a brighter tomorrow, too. Partnership allows us to tell the story of how you—your clients and employees–collaborate with Urban Ministries to make a difference in the community. Read more about business partnership.


Champions are individuals or families who donate at least $500 yearly to Urban Ministries and who commit to repeating it for at least three years. You can make a one-time donation, set up monthly installments, or sponsor an event and bring your friends! Sign up here!
