Due to the ongoing pandemic and current restrictions about in-person events, Yours Humanly made the difficult decision to cancel its 2021 Gift of Schooling Gala, the signature event that significantly powers our projects and programs on behalf of children in need by bringing in the most annual funding. We expected the health crisis to be under control by the first quarter of 2021, easing restrictions and allowing for gatherings. That is not the case, but the need is still crushingly alive and the programs must continue during these difficult and unsettled times.
We do have good news! An Angel Donor has stepped forward who will match all gifts of $250 and above made from March 1 through May 31, 2021, doubling donations at those levels. Consider the donations you would have made at the gala fundraiser through ticket purchase, silent and live auctions, and Fund a Need. Our generous Angel Donor invites you to step up, too, and put your intended gala donations where they will make a dramatic difference in the life of a child forever.
Under our Coloring Futures initiative, hundreds of Yours Humanly scholars are continuing their educational journey despite health crisis challenges, and we need your help to fund their tuition, uniforms, books, supplies, meals, and other education-related expenses.
Under our Bridging Gaps initiative, we provide support to students at Title 1 schools who lack access to distance learning technologies and other tools and resources they need to get the education they deserve. We need your help to continue to supply STEM and Math kits, art supplies, computers, story books, readers, and bilingual books.
Please give today and help us continue our programs that help transform the lives of children through the power of education. We will be there for them—and we ask you to join us.
