Now is the time…
You know that our approach to raising funds for our much-needed programs is thoughtful, deliberate, and efficient. Our development team oversees and is responsible for bringing in all of the private revenue for the agency, which enables our agency to be innovative, nimble, and not get bogged down by restrictive practices.
“Restrictive practices” include requiring monies to be used for very specific items without input from us on what we need. We must then track and report on these expenditures, which is time-consuming. We know how best to use the funds that are given to us, and we have always put our clients’ needs first. Just like any viable business, we should be trusted (and have no reason not to be), as we have proven ourselves to be honest stewards of your funds as well as compassionate and authentic partners, always serving the myriad of needs for those without homes.
Moving forward, we insist, as part of our desire to do what is best for our clients and this agency, that we only accept unrestricted donations. Please read more about our Impact Funds project, which is a bold but necessary way of asking you – our donors – what we specifically need.
As another critical next step in what is best for our clients, we would like to ask that you consider committing to a multi-year, transformational gift.
