20th Anniversary Challenge Grant
By Rev. Robert Selle
We are thrilled to report that we surpassed our 20th Anniversary Challenge Grant goal of $20,000. Judy Small, widow of longtime volunteer and board member Bob Small, offered to match any qualified gift during November and December dollar-for-dollar up to $20,000. We received 47 qualified gifts, including 30 new donors totaling $25,192. Thanks to the generosity of all participants her challenge grant resulted in a total gain of $45,192. These special gifts helped us end the 2016 year with a surplus of $10,200. This helps us continue to provide the spiritual, legal and social services that help immigrants to Southwest Florida to a successful life here in the United States and the Kingdom of God.
