A message from Mychael Blinde, Development Manager:
Hello, Friends of Pathways!
Do you remember last year when we raised over $27,000 in 24 hours?
Well, I am THRILLED to announce that we’re going to rock Giving Day again this year, so mark your calendars for April 24th!
Here’s the most exciting part about Giving Day:
For the 24 hours of April 24th, ALL YOUR DONATIONS WILL BE DOUBLED DOLLAR-FOR-DOLLAR up to $15,000!
That means we have the chance to raise $30,000 in just 24 hours to help end hunger and homelessness! But we need your help to reach out goal!
How to Double Your Donation on Giving Day:
If you want your donation to be doubled on Giving Day, simply click the link below and make your donation through the online donation page.
(Please note that the “Donate” button won’t become available on our Giving Day donation page until April 24th.)
Donating with Checks on Giving Day:
If you would like to write a check instead of donating online, don’t worry — you can donate with a check and your donation will still be doubled! All you have to do is reach out to me by calling (714) 680-3691 ext. 233 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to pledge your donation before the end of Giving Day.
If you want to donate by check, you don’t have to wait until Giving Day to make your pledge and ensure that your donation will be doubled. In fact, the earlier you pledge your donation, the more successful our Giving Day will be, so if you would like to donate via check, please give me a call or send me an email today!
The Generous Donors Doubling Your Donations:
Pathways of Hope is so grateful for the amazing support of the generous donors who are contributing the $15,000 matching opportunity. Many thanks to Kemp Financial Management for providing a $10,000 matching gift, and many thanks to Sonny and Martha Kothari for providing a $5,000 matching gift!
Your generosity has already inspired so many other people in our community to make their own generous donations to our agency. Because of your support, families and individuals on the brink of homelessness will be saved from ever becoming homeless. Because of your compassion, families and individuals facing the crisis of homelessness will find help and hope at our doors this year.
The Partnerships Making Giving Day Possible:
Pathways is proud to partner with the Orange County Community Foundation and 16 other OC nonprofit organizations who are dedicated to ending homelessness for our 2nd annual #HelpThemHome Giving Day. Together, our goal is to raise over $650,000 to end homelessness in Orange County.
We are grateful to the Orange County Community Foundation and to our nonprofit partners for their inspiring collaboration on this special project.
(Please note that all donations made through the Giving Day link above go directly to Pathways of Hope, and all check donations made out to Pathways of Hope will also go directly to our agency to support the struggling people we serve in North OC.)
Will You Join Us?
Remember, we only have ONE DAY to raise $15,000 and receive our full $15,000 match — will you donate on Giving Day and help us reach our goal?
Whether you can give $5, $50, or $500, your gift will show North OC’s most vulnerable residents that they are loved and supported by a caring and compassionate community.
Please join us and make your donation in support of our neighbors in need — and remember, ALL YOUR DONATIONS WILL BE DOUBLED! But ONLY for the 24 hours of Giving Day!
Thank you for making a difference in the lives of people who are struggling and seeking hope.
