A Yearly Tradition of Giving to Empower People Affected by Substance Use Disorder
The Empowerment Appeal
Join Herren Project every July to empower more people during the next fiscal year to live healthy, fulfilling lives free from the effects of addiction.
Throughout the month of July, Herren Project followers are asked to support our annual giving campaign, The Empowerment Appeal. This annual tradition, started in 2019, raises funds to directly support Herren Project’s mission to support, inspire and empower those affected by substance use disorder, one person, one family, one community at a time. All funds raised maintain the general operating expenses of Herren Project as well as support our treatment and prevention initiatives.
A yearly contribution to Herren Project in July provides us with a reliable foundation to allow us to not only improve our current programs and services for recovery and prevention of substance use disorder, but to add new services to those seeking help for the recovery of addiction and prevention of substance misuse.
To plant a seed says, “I believe in tomorrow.”
To plant a seed on behalf of another says,
“I believe in YOU!”
Join Herren Project during the month of July, 2020 for our Annual Campaign, The Empowerment Appeal. By making a donation to Herren Project, you will be planting a seed to empower other individuals to live a life free from the effects of addiction.

“The Empowerment Annual Appeal has become a vital part in our yearly fundraising efforts at Herren Project. In 2019, we were able to raise over $400,000 through the generosity of individuals and families across the country, the Team Herren Project community as well as through our committed partnerships with many private foundations. Thank you for supporting our mission year after year. We are blessed with an incredible community for which we are truly grateful. It is because of your efforts that we are able to continue to provide free resources and scholarships for those affected by substance use disorder like treatment placement assistance, recovery scholarships, family support groups and our evidence-informed prevention and wellness initiatives for schools and communities.
