Two years ago we held a fundraiser for the Elizabeth Stone House to celebrate my birthday, and a lot of my friends contributed. It was a great success! This year we're doing it again but with an extra bonus incentive. The Willow Tree Fund has made a challenge grant: $100,000 if the Elizabeth Stone House can match it! We have raised $85,000 so far and need only $15,000 more to unlock the Willowtree Fund dollars, which are desperately needed now to get us out of design and into construction this year.
The new building will transform how the Elizabeth Stone House is able to serve domestic violence survivors and their children, and runs community programs to prevent domestic violence and abuse. See http://www.elizabethstone.org/building-with-a-mission/ If you would like any more information, or ask me!
Oh, by the way, my birthday is April 8. Let's see if together we can raise $15,000 by that day! Every contribution of any size counts, and is fully tax deductible.
