It’s time for #GivingTuesday, the national day of giving on November 29th!

Our goal? To Raise $25,000!

Click here to learn more or make your donation today!

There’s more! Everyone who gives will have their gifts matched up to $25,000! Thanks to Jim and Kay Mabie, Elisa K. Spain, Vistage, Master Chair, Kevin Krak of Gallant Building Solutions, and Eric and Tina Weinheimer, the challenge grant is back and bigger than ever! We want to take full advantage of the match and raise a total of $50,000!

November 29th also happens to be our CEO Maria Kim’s birthday. She has made a vow that if we raise $20,000, she would take an entire frosting-filled birthday cake in the face to help keep the momentum going! Let’s give her a birthday “treat” she’ll never forget!
