More Ways to Support Our Mission

There are many ways you can help us receive financial support, at no cost to you and with very little effort.

Support us when you shop on Amazon


Choose Cultivate as your charity and every time you shop, we receive a portion of eligible purchases (0.5%) from the Amazon Smile Foundation!

How it works on desktop:

  1. Visit and sign into your Amazon account, if not already.  This link will designate Cultivate as your charity of choice.
  2. If you need to search and designate Cultivate, make sure you choose the one based in Lakeville, MN, as there are multiples.
  3. Shop as usual, and watch the donations add up!


If you are on a mobile app:

  1. Open the Amazon app on your phone
  2. Select the main menu (=) & tap on “AmazonSmile” within Programs & Features
  3. Select Cultivate as your charity (If you need to search and designate Cultivate, make sure you choose the one based in Lakeville, MN, as there are multiples).
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions to activate AmazonSmile in the mobile app
  5. Shop as usual, and watch your donations add up!

You get gas & restaurant discounts, Cultivate gets cash!

Simply download the GetUpside app to your phone through this link and use it when purchasing gasoline or at participating restaurants. You'll get cash back and Cultivate gets a small grant from GetUpside as well.

Make sure you use invite code BSXPS when signing up so that Cultivate receives the support!

Thrivent Financial Grants


Thrivent Financial members can designate grants (Choice Dollars) to Cultivate at no cost to themselves.

To find out how much you are able to give and how to designate your grant to Cultivate, click here.

Thrivent Financial members can also create an Action Team to serve Cultivate, and receive $250 grants for the project. Learn more here.

Ways an Action Team can serve Cultivate:

  • Host a Paint & Sip, informal dinner, small concert, or other gatherings in your home, church, workplace, or other group meeting.
  • Host a virtual or in-person volunteer-a-thon where groups of 3-5 people help us for 2-4 hours with research, campaigns/event prep, program assistance, and other important tasks.

Workplace Giving

Workplace giving is a great way to not only support Cultivate but also promote the organization to other employees. By starting a workplace giving campaign, you will make an impact on people’s lives and connect generous employees with the opportunity to give back.

Some companies offer employees fun incentives for their generosity, such as purchasing casual day stickers, having a Friday happy hour or pot luck, or buying your daily donut.

Many companies allow for philanthropic giving whether it be through workplace giving or “adopting” a charity. So the next time you’re selecting an organization to make a collective gift to, please consider Cultivate.
