TOGETHER, WE DID IT!!
This year, our #GivingTuesday goal was to raise $30,000 towards renovating our early childhood development spaces at Laura's Home!
With special thanks to a generous matching gift donation by the Anderson Foundation we have met and exceeded our goal, reaching a grand total of $37,675! After the initial matching gift donation of $15,000 was reached, it was expanded with an additional $3,000 and even that was reached as well, doubling virtually every #GivingTuesday donation we received.
We are incredibly grateful to the Anderson Foundation and to everyone who came together with us for #GivingTuesday, making these critical improvements to our early childhood development areas possible.
The children we serve in our Pathways program often must overcome additional barriers that can impact their long-term health and success. As an organization, we hope to equip every child who comes to the Mission with the skills necessary to begin their education having overcome as many obstacles as needed.
Every donation is eligible to win a Cleveland Prize Package with a variety of unique locally-themed gifts with a $300 estimated value. This includes two 16" x 24" canvas prints of Cleveland photography, a hardwood skyline wallhanging custom made by a local woodworker, and a $25 gift card to Mitchell's Ice Cream!
We will be pulling the winning name of the Cleveland Prize Package soon. The winner will be contacted via email.
