In October, we had two fundraising events that are propelling us into the 2014-2015 fiscal year: the 10/10 Challenge and the Young Life Benefit Concert featuring Allen Levi. Through these two events, we were blessed with closed to $50,000 in funding towards our annual budget of $264,157.
The 10/10 Challenge was inspired by the ingenuity of our TDS (Taking Donors Seriously) Chair, Caryn Ellison. The goal was to raise $10,000 through $10 donations on October 10th. This was our first run at this event and it yielded close to $5,000 in revenue.
The Young Life Benefit Concert featuring Allen Levi was our second annual. Our goal was to raise $25,000 in new funding. Well, the Lord blessed us with close to $35,000 in new money and an additional $10,000 from historic givers. The total raised at the concert was close to $45,000.
Needless to say, we are blessed. Blessed with a great Committee, great Leaders and Staff, and the Living God who continues to provide for our mission to introduce adolescents to Jesus Christ and help them grow in their faith in South Bend, Mishawaka, and Granger, Indiana.
Thanks to all who faithfully support us in time, energy, and funding!
