THE STORY:

END OF YEAR RENT RALLY KICKS OFF TOMORROW. ON GIVING TUESDAY!
Call to Action from our Founding Director:

Dear TSU Supporters (past, present and future!),
Your participation is needed in our END OF YEAR RENT RALLY!

ONE OF OUR BIGGEST STRENGTHS is the awesome Center in which we are able to connect families and the community on this journey of moving families from surviving to THRIVING. While we have an amazing landlord who gives us a great deal, the reality is… we are short on funds and won’t be able to cover December rent!

THAT LAST SENTENCE WAS HARD FOR ME TO WRITE. There are so many WOW-ing things happening, I hesitated to be so honest. The truth is, this has been an incredible year
(as evidenced by our great 2013 HIGHLIGHTS LIST, the stories of many TSU families and our 2013 YEAR IN REVIEW VIDEO). But, another TRUTH is, finances are at a tough spot. We didn’t have a BIG Grant/Contest WIN like we had our first 2 years ($25,000 from Kelloggs/PopTarts in our first year and $35,000 from Liberty Mutual last year). That fact added to TSU taking the necessary plunge of adding our first part-time staff (in June) and then losing our main subleasor (in September) has brought us to a challenging financial time. So… the honest truth is, we currently fall short on the income needed to cover our expenses each month.

WE ARE CONFIDENT THAT WILL CHANGE IN 2014 AND THAT’S THE REASON FOR
THE END OF YEAR RENT RALLY!
WE NEED YOUR HELP TO ALLOW US TO MOVE INTO 2014!
TWO WAYS TO HELP:
• Please consider giving a one-time, end of the year tax-deductible gift NOW!
And/or
• Become a Monthly Supporter in 2014! We have 11 Monthly Supporters who give between $25 and $150/month. That number must increase to 50 monthly supporters in the first part of 2014!

Any amount is immediately used for keeping the doors open on this Family Center that is positively changing the trajectory of SO many families in our community!

One more thing YOU NEED TO KNOW… As TSU’s Volunteer Founding Director, I am still 110% committed to leading this non-profit as we TEAM UP to change the lives of kids and families in our community! The future of countless children will be different because of This Side UP! Family Center. We are strengthening the biggest contributor to a child’s success and the true foundation of our community– THE FAMILY! As we turn three, I am confident that our supporters will continue to step up (and in) even more! Thank you for serving, giving, encouraging in SO many ways - too many to count!
And thank you in advance for making this END OF YEAR RENT RALLY a catalyst for what’s ahead on 2014!l!

With Gratitude and Great Anticipation!,
Sarah Morris, Founding Director
