The annual Holiday Fundraising Campaign went very well. As of this writing, with a couple of days to go, we have not quite reached the goal of $50,000, but we have passed $49,000. Considering that last year was the first time we raised more than $30,000, this feels very successful.
Grants and gifts are a small part of Imagine’s total funding. Pursuing them is an even smaller part of what we do. But the importance of these gifts is that the generosity of our community allows us to bridge the unfunded needs of the people we serve. In times of crisis, whether for one individual or the whole world at once, it’s the reserves provided by donors and philanthropies that help us adapt, be generous, and focus our resources where they’ll do the most good.
We’re very grateful for the support from the community, which takes many forms, including friendships, kind words and wishes, voluntary assistance, partnerships, and donations to our agency. I thank you.
