2013 Fundraising Goal: $1,850,000

April 14, 2013: 31.7%
Last year with 34% of our employees contributing, the Benevolent Fund was able to raise $1.82 million. Our goal this year is to raise $1.85 million and we have a stretch goal –A Goal of Hope -- to raise $1.9 million. I believe we can not only meet our goal but exceed our goals and give even more hope to our community.
If every employee who did not contribute to the Benevolent Fund last year pledged just $1 per month, we would raise an additional $150,000! We would exceed our fundraising goal for the year and reach our Goal of Hope for our community.
$1 a month can fund:
3 generic prescriptions for a co-worker through the Employee Emergency Assistance Program
7.5 pounds of groceries for a food bank or shelter such as United Way Community Food Bank and Pathways
KidCheck Plus head-to-toe health screening for one child that does not have insurance through Sight Savers
We need your support to make it happen! Please join with us and make 2013 a remarkable year for giving hope. Make a pledge and become a continuous donor to the Benevolent Fund.
