MissionBox is committed to a revolutionary idea: that true, deep and personalized “head and heart” engagement with supporters — donors, staff, volunteers, board members, alumni and other consumers — can drive social change and strengthen financial sustainability for all nonprofits and charities.
In 200 to 250 words, hundreds of special nonprofits and charities, from around the world, told our judges what the term “Nonprofit Engagement Revolution” means to them.
Here’s what the winning submission from Habitat for Humanity Inland Valley had to say about the nonprofit engagement revolution
Nonprofit Engagement Revolution is a collaborative movement, sparked by a vision, that brings people and organizations, from various backgrounds, together to make a positive impact in the world for the common good.
"Each one of us can make a difference. Together we make change." Barbara Mikulski
For example - revolutions start with an idea. In our case it would be, “to facilitate the dream of homeownership, as well as improve living conditions for those in the community.” This idea then manifests into a dream that people can related to and rally round. From there it becomes a movement for good. This is exactly what happened for us with Menifee Better Together.
This started very grassroots when our organization, the city and a small group of volunteers worked together to clean up a blighted, low income senior neighborhood. Fast forward six year later, the community caught wind of it and now it has evolved into annual day of service to where over 600 people come together to revitalize four low income senior neighborhoods. This event has become a movement that brings together individuals of all ages, donors, the city, businesses, other nonprofits, and the local faith community and mobilizes them to uplift the community.
We believe that people innately want to get involved and elevate the communities they live and work in. It is up to us to give people the chance by providing a collective forum that expresses a need, inspires action and creates good.

More about the program
Habitat for Humanity Inland Valley was founded on Christian principles in 1991, as an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, to provide low income housing for families in the Inland Valley. We serve the cities of Temecula, Murrieta, Wildomar, Lake Elsinore, Canyon Lake, Sun City, Menifee, and Perris. Habitat for Humanity Inland Valley is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally, as well as globally, through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their housing conditions. Habitat for Humanity was found on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, decent place to live and that it should be a matter of conscience and action for all.
All are welcome
Habitat for Humanity Inland Valley has an open-door policy: All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people.
