We are honored to announce that one of our longterm foundation supporters has pledged to match, dollar for dollar, up to $10,000 that we raise at the Spring Fundraiser and in our holiday giving campaign. This amazing opportunity will allow us to leverage $20,000 of support for our programs. In order to ensure that we meet this challenge and take full advantage of this opportunity, our goal for the Spring Fundraiser is to raise $5,000. The money that we raise on June 6th will help to support our programs throughout the year, including exposing middle school students to other cultures, helping to prepare college students to compete in a global market place, engaging young professionals in human rights and social justice service, and working to broaden the horizons of our communities.
The evening will be a great opportunity to spend time with friends, and to meet some of our supporters that you may not know. We hope that you will join us for this celebration of our shared vision and desire to build a more peaceful, equitable and just world.
