Thank you for your wonderful work, encouragement, and support this year.
As we get very close to the end of our year, I wanted to let you know that we are also getting closer to reaching the numbers we need to fully fund our ministry.
But we are not quite there. You can help us!
We have reached 77% of our goal for first-time donors. You can help us reach 100% – and your gift will be matched by another ELM supporter! That means ELM gets twice the gift!
We have reached 61% of our goal for the matching gift – any first time, new, or renewed (haven’t given since 2013) will be doubled – up to $10,000!
We have reached 74% of our goal for total individual donors – you can help us reach 100%.
We have reached 88% of fully funding our ministry. You can help us reach 100% so we start 2016 off strong with a balanced budget that allows us to serve LGBTQ people in ministry.
Those who are sending prayers and encouragement – thank you.
If you’ve recently sent a gift in the mail, thank you!
For those who wish to make a financial gift and haven’t yet – just three days left to give and be counted among those giving to ELM this year.
You can visit our website – www.elm.org – to make a secure on-line gift. You can also mail a gift us – it must be postmarked on or by Dec 31 to count for the match and this year’s giving – ELM + PO Box 14317 + Chicago, IL 60614-8503.
Your gift supports LGBTQ people in ministry because it shows them the church is saying YES to their call and is investing in them.
Proclaim leaders say thank you and I say thank you!
