A message from Mychael Blinde, Development Manager
Dear awesome supporters of Pathways,
Pathways of Hope is raising funds to prevent homelessness for struggling people who have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
You can help: All donations will be DOUBLED dollar-for-dollar on Giving Day, April 22nd – but ONLY for 24 hours!
You see, two generous donors are offering a $15,000 matching donation for Giving Day.
That means we have a chance to raise over $30,000 in 24 hours to help prevent people from becoming homeless! But WE ONLY HAVE ONE DAY to raise enough funds to receive our full $15,000 match.
Due to the impacts of COVID-19, we have already seen a 35% increase in requests for housing services, and we expect this number to increase as the pandemic continues.
So this year we’re raising money to help prevent people from becoming homeless in our community.
Will you make a donation on April 22nd and help people who are struggling through the devastating crisis of homelessness?
HOW TO DOUBLE YOUR DONATION ON GIVING DAY:
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 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 and the Kothari Family for providing these generous matching donations!
To the Kemps and the Kotharis: 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 due to the devastating impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
THE PARTNERSHIPS MAKING GIVING DAY POSSIBLE:
Pathways is proud to partner with the Orange County Community Foundation and 17 other OC nonprofit organizations who are dedicated to ending homelessness for our 3nd annual #HelpThemHomeOC Giving Day. Together, our goal is to raise over $700,000 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.
