Genesis Farm Offered A $15,000 Challenge Grant For 30~30~30 Campaign
July 18, 2011
An anonymous donor has come forward to offer a matching challenge grant to Genesis Farm up to $15,000 for its “30~30~30: Reflection, Vision, Challenge” campaign. Every donation, up to a total of $15,000, will be matched dollar for dollar. That means that when you donate to 30~30~30, a contribution of equal value comes from an anonymous source and effectively doubles the impact of your giving.
Genesis Farm has initiated the “30~30~30: Reflection, Vision, Challenge” campaign to launch a legacy for Genesis Farm’s next 30 years by raising $30,000 in 30 days. “We are currently standing on a threshold on which we are setting our vision toward the next thirty years out of the resolve with which Genesis Farm was created three decades ago,” said Sr. Miriam MacGillis, Director and Founder, Genesis Farm. “The 30~30~30 campaign will help the staff prepare for the challenges that lie ahead.
“In the spring of 2013, I hope to entrust the legacy of the farm to new leadership,” said Sr. Miriam. “We are asking friends, supporters and our companions in the Great Work to share my hope of creating a firm financial foundation for its future. In the months between now and then, I hope we can garner the resources to better serve a new generation of seekers who will deepen and widen this vision of a more ecological and meaningful future.”
The challenge grant, which will match 30~30~30 donations dollar for dollar, is being offered by a friend of the farm who wishes to remain anonymous. “We are most grateful for the generosity of this donor and the faith and belief in our work that this gift expresses,” Sr. Miriam said.
The matching grant effectively doubles the impact of an individual’s gift. A gift of $10 becomes $20, a gift of $50 becomes $100, and so on. If you would like to support Genesis Farm’s work, this is a great opportunity to make a real difference with your contribution.
