I am very excited to be able to share news about a fundraising opportunity for AIC this year!
We have been offered a challenge.
An extremely generous donor has come forward with the offer to match, dollar for dollar, contributions raised by AIC’s global fundraising efforts after an initial $50,000 fundraising goal has been met. So, once we have raised $50,000 this year, every additional donation beyond that will be matched one-to-one, up to a maximum of $80,000 in potential matching funds in 2012.
[EIGHTY THOUSAND DOLLARS!]
This means that this year, your donations to AIC will have more of an impact than ever before: $130,000 in donations will be increased to $210,000 for the AIC children and community members through the matching funds.
This is a tremendous opportunity, particularly in a global climate of economic hardship, and we feel very fortunate. Now, let’s take advantage of this gift and get the word out! Please help us by sharing this post, retweeting/sharing/linking/whatever-you-do-best and encouraging those you know to become AIC supporters as well. Donations can be made in the US, Canada, the UK, Austria, India or from anywhere in the world online – all go toward the matching funds project. Let’s make this happen.
Thank you from all of us at AIC ♥
