Thanks and the Giving Match Challenge Reminder!
It’s at this time of year that the Board of Directors reflects on the successes of the year and in 2013 we have a lot to be truly thankful for!
We have a terrific and growing membership, truly dedicated volunteers, and amazing donors who continue to support the Society and our mission of Service, Awareness and Community. On behalf of the Board and all members and friends of the Society I want to thank each of you for your contributions of time and treasure this year and look forward to an even bigger 2014!
Giving Match Challenge
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that the Giving Match Challenge is still on!
There are still a few days remaining in 2013 to give your tax-deductible donation to the Society and have it count as double your money. This unique appeal was something me and my wife discussed at great length and firmly believe is a great way to encourage end of year giving and enhance your own contributions. There is still a very large pot of unmatched money waiting to be given before 12/31! If the money isn’t matched it is forfeit, so please consider giving in any amount before midnight on 12/31. If you give $25 you are automatically giving $50 with the Match. If you give $250 you are automatically inducted at the Society CLUB for 2014…a 50% savings over a normal year!
Please take a few moments to consider how much good your support does for our students and programs during the year, and with Training right around the corner, the need is greater than ever!
2014 and Beyond!
2014 marks 7 years since our Founding, and we couldn’t be more pleased at what’s in store for our organization. With the Training Program right around the corner, a new website, more Social Events including a new spring event (more news soon) we continue to support local institutions as we look to the bigger picture. With an all-star Training Staff, guest speakers, and a truly robust educational certification program, now is the time to consider getting involved! If you are interested in getting involved in the Training program please sign up on our website or contact Melissa Dennedy at:firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks again to EVERYONE for your love and support! From our family to yours we hope you and your families have a wonderful holiday season and a Happy New Year!
