ELi continued its year-end sustainability fundraising drive this week with a focus on Tuesday’s #GivingNewsDay event. We have now raised, with matching funds, $33,330 toward our goal of $80,000. That puts us at about 42% the way there!

Through December 31, ELi is eligible for $25,000 in one-to-one matching funds thanks to NewsMatch. Additionally, a group of core local donors has committed $15,000 in funds, bringing our total match ability to $40,000.

Monthly commitments are currently being matched at the annual rate! So a monthly credit card commitment of $10/month puts us $240 closer to the goal. A monthly credit card commitment of $20 puts us $480 closer!

Donations are tax deductible for the year in which the donations are made.

It’s easy to help! Just go to our dedicated NewsMatch page and click on the green “donate” button. If you want to make a monthly commitment, choose “make this a recurring gift.”

If you’ve already donated and wish you could do more, consider encouraging friends to join you in donating. Tell folks in your own words why you choose to support ELi as a public service organization for your community.

Many thanks from the whole ELi team.
