the project

Missouri Good Neighbor Weeks begins on National Good Neighbor Day is Sept. 28 and continues for six days.

Missourians can either nominate someone as the Engaged Neighbor of the Year or submit an act of neighboring in our 10,000 Acts of Neighboring Challenge. Participants will be placed in a random drawing for prizes and top ideas will be recognized as "best act of neighboring" in participating Missouri counties.

The goal is to bring focus to the importance of neighboring, launch new neighboring programs, and develop partnerships to teach about and promote the importance of neighboring year-round. We need sponsorship dollars to help make this project possible in 2022.

When anyone is talking about  neighboring we all benefit!

the steps

Donations will help purchase prizes for random drawings when participants submit a report of neighboring as part of Missouri Good Neighbor Week. Sponsorships will also help pay for marketing costs. Media coverage will make this event a success and elevate the topic of neighboring to a regular year-round discussion topic.

All donations go directly into funding our 10,000 Acts of Neighboring project and motivating residents to give neighboring a try themselves.

why we're doing it

The goal is to bring focus to the important connection between neighboring, community health and civil discourse. This program is focused on launching new neighbor training programs, and developing partnerships to teach and promote the importance of neighboring. Community development begins in your neighborhood by developing relationships with your immediate neighbors to improve your neighborhood, your own quality of life and ultimately your community. These efforts reduce isolation and loneliness among residents, improve communication and discourse among diverse individuals, and actually helps to develop individual leadership skills at the most grassroots level. Our long-term goal is to see National Good Neighbor Day become celebrated nationwide annually.
