Get up and GIVE on September 15th!

Every dollar goes further on September 15th!




We want to let you know about a great opportunity next week for Champions of Hope!  For 12 hours- 7am to 7pm–  on Thursday September 15th every donation will receive matching funds!   

Donor Bridge is an initiative sponsored by Communities Foundation of Texas and the Dallas Foundation which will use a portion of the $700,000 they are contributing to every gift we receive through Donor Bridge.  In addition, there are awards of $10,000 each for the largest number of contributors and the largest amount of contributions on this one day.  (Give as little as $25.00 to help us win the $10K for the most unique donors!)
Our request to you is that if you are considering a gift to Champions of Hope this year, September 15th sure would be a great day to give!
*In addition to Donor Bridge, matching funds are still available to all donations from new donors. An area foundation will match every dollar from a new donor who gives before December 31st. 
We certainly don’t want to be presumptuous in either ‘when’ or ‘if’ you give to us this year.  We know that you have a larger agenda to consider, but wanted to inform you of this great opportunity to make more of every dollar!  
We do want you to know that Champions of Hope is impacting the young people of South Dallas through Christ-centered relationships!  Our mentor program reaches over 100 children in this community and we have over 40 adults in the process of becoming new mentors.  Love and time are the most valuable things we can share with children- reaching them with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and discipling them to be leaders in their community. 
If you do choose to give on September 15th, you can donate through this button which is also at the top of our Champions of Hope Website.  




We appreciate your consideration of giving and your prayers for our ministry.  Please let me know if you have any questions!



Carly Pickens, Executive Director
