The Extension Received a Challenge Grant and Needs Your Support!

[bs_lead] We have great news to share!  As part of its ongoing efforts to raise money, The Extension received a grant of $25,000 from a family foundation. [/bs_lead]

This grant is a challenge grant which challenges The Extension and it’s supporters to develop ways to garner support from the community. The intent of the foundation is to grow our individual donor base, and of course gifts received. The Foundation will match every dollar we receive from new donors to the organization by December 31, 2015.

For example, if a new donor makes a donation to The Extension in the amount of $100, the Foundation will match that donation with $100.  There is a limit of $25,000 total that will be matched.

The board and staff of The Extension realize that these are hard times for many but just imagine what our residents are facing given the obstacles they face on a daily basis.  Addiction leads to job loss, loss of family support, depression, homelessness, and much more.  Every dollar that is given to The Extension makes a difference!

Many employers will match an employee’s donation. Ask your employer if they will match your gift to The Extension and your dollar will triple!

You can be creative with your donation. Are you on Facebook? Ask your friends to make a donation to The Extension. Do you like to entertain? Have a party at your home and ask for donations.  How about an office fundraiser?  There are so many ways you can help The Extension. This is a challenge that we have accepted with faith.  We know we can do it with your support!!
