A great day of giving through Midlands Gives
On May 5, supporters of Fathers and Families in South Carolina had the opportunity to give to the Center, and see their gift doubled, through Midlands Gives, a special one-day, communitywide fund-raising program sponsored by the Central Carolina Community Foundation.
A generous (and anonymous) individual had pledged to give us $2,500 if we raised $2,500 through Midlands Gives. But we had to raise the whole amount to get any of it.
Well, we did that and then some. The Center brought in 26 gifts totaling $8,125.
Meanwhile, Midlands Fatherhood Coalition was participating in Midlands Gives independently, while A Father's Place participated in Lowcountry Day of Giving.
Altogether, we received $16,140 in gifts!
We are so deeply grateful to everyone who made a contribution to the Center, Midlands Fatherhood Coalition and A Father's Place! We all exceeded our goals. We are so appreciative of those who helped get the word out through social media, tweets, text -- anything and everything. We could NOT have done it without YOU! Because of you, fathers will continue to receive support to overcome their challenges and to become the best fathers they can be.
THANK YOU AGAIN!
