A Little LIFT
“Where crowd funding meets barrier elimination”
Many of our neighbors struggle to find stability; to attain self-sufficiency; and to ultimately achieve prosperity.
ALL [A Little LIFT] is a community led, member directed initiative that has an immediate impact on Blueprints [formerly Community Action Southwest] participating individuals and families who are living this struggle.
Blueprints works with more than 19,000 people each year, implementing 35+ services from more 34 locations throughout southwestern PA and West Virginia.
Barriers to self-reliance frequently cannot be resolved with traditional, grant funded programming, and our clientele needlessly lose progress towards self-reliance, perpetuating the need for additional services and dependence on those services.
The ALL initiative is an opportunity for community members or groups to easily prevent small problems from becoming catastrophes for local families and making our community stronger as a result.
All funds received through this initiative are used by Blueprints team members to resolve client barriers.
FUNDS ARE NEVER PAID DIRECTLY TO BLUEPRINTS’ CLIENTS.

CNX and its employees have been extremely generous to Blueprints and our participants, especially around the holidays. Last year, CNX employees donated more than $3000 to make Christmas special for dozens of our families. This LIFT is for CNX employees who would like to participate in this initiative again this year. All proceeds will go directly to Blueprints’ families for Christmas. CNX will match employee donations up to $2500!!$205.00 donated of $2,500.00 goalDonate
Each holiday season, a team of volunteers organizes a special opportunity for community members to sponsor a Blueprints’ family for Christmas. Sponsors provide groceries, new holiday wrapped clothing, shoes and toys for local children. If you are not able to adopt an entire family, but would still like to contribute, this fund will be used by the volunteer team to sponsor a family and/or purchase groceries for families in the Adopt-a-Family Project. Thank you!$425.00 donatedDonate
A single dad with full-time custody of his two daughters involved in Blueprints Early Learning and WIC, is in need of help to obtain beds. Dad just began a new job amidst the pandemic and is working to get caught up on bills and necessities. His girls are in need of beds and mattresses for the home and could utilize bunk beds for a long time since they are young. This support would help a single dad struggling to make ends meet as well as provide beds for two young girls.$285.00 donated of $260.00 goalDonate
