TO ALL OUR SUPPORTERS:
UPDATE ON OUR FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN FOR 2016
OUR TOTAL SO FAR IS $14,950
We have had an OK start to this year’s fundraiser. I want to thank all those who stepped up and participated in the Giving Tuesday as we were able to double match on our Globalgiving project as GG was matching $1 for $1 and our anonymous donor also matched $1 for $1. The total with matching donations for Giving Tuesday was $6,465. Since that day we have collected another $6,995 on our Globalgiving project. Our Globalgiving project has brought in so far today $13,460. (The total of $36,362.32 on Globalgiving shows what we have received since 2014 when we started our project, not what this year’s total is.) Our Paypal account has taken in $145. Yesterday at the Hidden Forest Art Gallery we collected just over $600.
Yes, $15K is a large amount of money but it is only half of what we need to bring in. Let’s take advantage of the anonymous donor as we have only used $5232 of the match of $20K. We can do better, as I know many of you support the work we do. I’m not going to let myself, the director, think about cutting back on the services we offer to our community as well as all around the country. It’s up to you to spread the word and get your friends and family to donate. Even a simple text GIVE 15372 to the phone number 80-100, will donate $10. Those $10 donations will add up quickly. So we have three weeks to go! Let’s make this happen!
