Facing Forward

Announcing the Strong Futures Campaign!

By participating in the Strong Futures Campaign, you’ll help families transition out of homelessness today and ensure a strong tomorrow by creating a $50,000 Sustainability Fund. Your new or increased gift amount will be matched by an anonymous funder, up to $5,000 per donor!

The Details

There are two ways you can participate and amplify your impact:

  • You’re a new donor: Make a first-time gift and it will be matched! Pledges made now for next year will also be matched!
  • You’re a returning donor: Make a larger gift than your total 2017 or 2018 contribution to Facing Forward, and the amount you donate over your previous total will be matched! Pledges for next year will activate the same match!

A portion of your donation will go toward ending the cycle of homelessness today, and the increased/matched amount will go toward the Sustainability Fund, building stability and fulfilling dreams for the future.

You can join the campaign by giving now through June 2019.

**Not interested in increasing your gift size from last year? Your gift of any amount helps!**

How your Strong Futures gift will support residents at Facing Forward
