Dear Friends and Donors,
As we rapidly approach the end of this calendar year, I thought it would be nice to send out a message with the intent of recapping the 1st full year of iCompassion’s operation.
Within the Executive Board, I am probably the most known for being the least impressed and emotionally moved by meeting goals. My fellow board members would probably agree. We could have helped a billion people, but without hard numbers, I wouldn’t be phased.
However, we do have some things that can be quantified that I can share with you. As I started looking at this, my heart was both admonished and excited. Here goes…
Without any special capital or fundraising campaigns, iCompassion was able to:
Looking to 2019, we are looking to do more of the same, but even more. We want to be positioned where we can do the most good and are actively listening and preparing for the next wave. One of the areas where we are likely to get involved is with orphans; there are a couple of places that we are evaluating for partnership. Stay tuned.
Finally, a very big Thank You to all of you who have opened your hearts and have given to this great work. You will certainly have great reward. For those who haven’t given or were unable to give, we love you very much and are grateful that you are on this journey with us. We already know it is in your heart to be a part of iCompassion’s mission, so if now at the end of the year you are able to donate to the work of iCompassion, please reach out to myself or one of the other Board members or just go to our website and do it electronically. Any way you do it, you will get a tax receipt so that you can deduct the amount given from your 2018 taxes.
May you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy, Blessed, New Year!
iCompassion is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity. All contributions designated for specific projects shall be applied to those projects, and we may assess up to 10 percent to be used for administering the gift. Occasionally, we receive more contributions for a given project than can be wisely applied to that project. When that happens, we use these funds to meet a similar pressing need.
