Dear friends – Thanks to all who have given this week to the Farming Match Campaign, explained on our latest eVoice. To recap, we presented a critical need last week to raise $7,000 to provide a crucial farm training, as well as seed and fertilizer to try and provide food security this year to 1,700 people. An awesome return! We had great success last year and plan to repeat this year. But we needed the money. A supporter contacted us and pledged the full $7,000 needed for farming if we could raise $7,000 for Forgotten Voices’ General Fund.
Our Farming Match opportunity now runs through Sunday, September 23. With four days left, we have about $4,000 more to raise. Please consider making a donation today.
Want to know more before giving? You can read the eVoice to learn more about the match, as well as other needs.
You can give online today through Sunday. To give, visit our online donation page, then select General Fund. All donations given between now and Sunday, Sept 23 (up to $7,000 total) are being matched by a supporter of Forgotten Voices.
In addition, you can give through the mail. All gifts postmarked by September 23 will count toward the match goal. You may mail in a check out to Forgotten Voices, 1215 Gettysburg Pike, Dillsburg, PA 17019.
Thanks for your generous gifts!
- Ryan for the Forgotten Voices team
P.S. Ellen Shaffer, our Director of Project Management, was reflecting on this match opportunity. She was struck by how your gifts go even further than the money matched. You can read that here.
