Front Porch Account Giving Page

Thank you for your kind support.

Give via Venmo

Venmo is a free digital wallet that lets you make and share payments with family and friends.

Front Porch began using Venmo for student donations to Front Porch in March, 2017.  Since that time, students, family and friends of Front Porch have donated over $10,000 using Venmo!

If you already have a Venmo account, you can search for Front Porch SLO and make a payment. Or, it's easy to sign up. Go to and sign up using your Facebook account, or create an account with your email address. Cha-ching!

Give by Text Message

Some people are always on their phone!

If you prefer to do everything on your phone, Front Porch donors can give via Text Messaging.

It's very simple (we hope).

Text a command from your phone to 805-793-0121
