July Giving Challenge

It’s July, and that means we’re celebrating our “birthday” with gifts for our kids in Romania!

This year, a few generous donors and board members have pledged to match your gifts all month, dollar for dollar, up to $25,000.

Most of the matching gifts are pledged to finish some renovations on our Family Center in Romania. The major needed update is a new winter furnace. With wood heating becoming increasingly costly, our current 17-year-old wood-heating system is no longer efficient. If we can meet our $25,000 goal this month, our matching donors will give to update the furnace before winter!

This means that your gifts this month have twice the impact! While your gift is helping a child know the warmth of a family, it will be matched by a gift that literally warms our office–providing a space for social services, counseling, workshops, and more.

Here’s how you can help:

1. Give a tax-deductible gift this July. This gift will automatically secure a matching gift, up to our goal of $25,000! You can give securely online here, or by mailing a check to our address.

2. Plan a July fundraising event, such as a car wash, yard sale, or bake sale. Summer is the perfect time to gather a group of friends and raise money for a good cause!

3. “Like” our Facebook page and invite other friends to do the same. Sharing our posts is a great way to help spread awareness of our ministry.

4. Follow our progress toward our goal here on the website, or on Facebook. We will update our total every Friday, so you can see how we’re doing toward our $25,000 goal!
