Sandy's YMCA Annual Campaign
DEADLINE TO GIVE: May 01, 2014
FUNDRAISER SET UP DEADLINE: Apr 07, 2014
Dear Friends -
The YMCA of Greater Cincinnati is committed to supporting each child on their path from cradle to college and career. Each year we provide quality early childhood education for over 600 children and afterschool programs and summer day camps rich with literacy, skill development and supervised fun for over 6,000 children. Many of the children we serve need financial assistance for scholarships so they can be safe, while learning and building the confidence and social skills required to be successful in school and in life.
I have had the chance to get to know many of these children personally. They hold such amazing potential and merely need support and a positive environment to thrive.
I have a personal goal of raising $10,000 from friends this year through the Y's on-line giving site. Your generosity will insure that when families need support to enroll their child in the Y, we will not have to turn anyone away.
If together we raise $10,000, we could support:
* 10 elementary age children in a full school year of quality afterschool programs every day OR
* 14 kids could be part of our full-day Y summer day camp preventing the summer learning loss that sets kids back when they return to school in the fall OR
* 3 preschoolers enrolled for a whole year of quality, daily kindergarten readiness and nutritious meals.
I truly appreciate our friendship and your consideration to join me in this effort. Our overall YMCA of Greater Cincinnati goal is to raise $1.1 million by May 1st. I’ll keep you posted on our progress. It would be great have you help us ensure that all kids have the access, literacy-rich activities and supportive programs and mentors that build good healthy and resiliency!
