Now’s the time to make your donation to ACEs Connection, as we’re just $15,000 away from meeting the requirement to earn a matching grant for $50,000 during our ACEs Connection Changemaker Matching Grant campaign.
If you work for a company that matches charitable donations, the incentive to give is even greater, as your gift will be “double-matched”!
“During our Changemaker Matching Grant campaign, your donation, when matched by your employer’s corporate match, turns a $250 gift into a $1000 gift,” said Jane Stevens, founder and publisher of ACEs Connection.
“We’re asking our nearly 50,000 members to dig deep and help us reach our goal of collecting $50,000 in gifts from our members. For members who have jobs with employers that match tax deductible charitable contributions, the incentive is great. Your gift of $25, when matched by your employer, turns into $50. When matched by the generous anonymous donor who will match our gifts -- IF we reach the $50,000 goal -- a $25 gift becomes $100!
Previous donors who work for companies that match gifts are encouraged to contact their employers and report their donations, and have their employers email campaign manager Carey Sipp, SE regional community facilitator, at email@example.com about the match.
“We’re coming down to the wire on receiving this matching grant. If you’ve ever thought about how much you appreciate ACEs Connection, the people, the resources, the connections you’ve made here, this is the time to click on the link and share. Your gift will help accelerate the ACEs movement as we work to prevent trauma, heal toxic childhood stress, and help individuals, families, and communities become more resilient,” said Stevens.
Last week we published a partial list of donors; this week we share the names of more of our generous donors. We'll post a complete listing a few days after the campaign ends. Thank you, each and every one! To make your donation, please click here!
