BENEFITING: CHARITABLE PARTNERSHIP FUND
EVENT DATE: Jan 05, 2012
As many of you know, I've dedicated my life to CreativeCares and the concept of creative philanthropy.
Given this commitment, I thought I'd donate what's left and offer up my birthday as a way for all my friends to show their support for our amazing cause!
Recently, I met with the Executive Director at one of our partner nonprofits and she told me just one CreativeCares project gave them a $23,000 boost in contributions, I had not done my math correctly due to the deliriousness of the flu. Your impact in this one project resulted in a 29256% return on your investment, that's right, and it's amazing what we can do together.
Given this amazing fact, our community impact in 2011 was close to $700,000 in direct relationship to the organizations we serve in our communities. You may be asking yourself how can we do such amazing work? It’s pretty simple actually - we leverage the fact that people like you want to give of their time and money to make the world a better place and we make that happen, one project at a time!
It’s so rewarding to see our efforts positively impacting the community in such a tangible way. This is just one example of how your contributions to CreativeCares help nonprofits and the communities they serve in a real, measurable and important way. Whether you've volunteered with CreativeCares, donated money to us, told a friend about us, or all of the above, it’s going a long way and making a real difference. And after all, we don’t give just to feel warm and fuzzy. We give to create lasting positive change--and that’s exactly what we’re seeing. Thank you!
In 2012, we plan on matching 250 qualified creative professionals to under-resourced nonprofit organizations who need them. The benefit to the community will be massive. CreativeCares also helps meet a huge need by overcoming the financial, and therefore creative, limitations nonprofits run into constantly.
We need your help to build on this momentum in the coming year in order for CreativeCares to continue living out our mission. Please give $41 right now if you can. Obviously, more can do more, but we greatly appreciate support in any amount. Do the most you can do. As you can see above, it goes a long way, and if we work together, it will go even farther in 2012.
