Inspired by the Generosity of Others

Kara Powell | Jun 24, 2011

As you may have gathered from previous posts this month, we at FYI have a $50,000 matching grant for new donors that expires on June 30. In the last month, over $7,000 has come in, much of which is from folks who have given online in response to blogs and tweets. Gifts have ranged from $25 to $5000. It’s been AMAZING. Parents, youth leaders, friends and relatives of current donors have all stepped up to the plate and made a huge difference.

Here’s more information about the grant and how you can give in this last week to help raise the final $2,707.

In the last few days I’ve written a host of thank you notes, and am just so full of gratitude. Grateful to God, and grateful to you folks for the way you support us through gifts, prayer, and encouragement.

Thanks for sending us into the summer with so much exciting momentum!
