$50,000 alumni gift rockets Annual Fund 25% past last year
Generosity comes in all kinds of ways. Sometimes a compassionate act, a kind word, or even the gift of friendship from a campmate at Rising Sun. Today, when we opened the mail, we discovered something of incredible generosity that we wish to share with you.
Today we received a generous $50,000 gift from one anonymous alumni donor. With this leadership-level gift, this donor is helping to make possible the full-scholarship Camp Rising Sun opportunity for seven campers in 2015. This brings our 2014-2015 campaign total to $225,510.36 from 288 donors, a milestone nearly over $55,000 (24%) and 27 donors (11%) ahead of our campaign at this time last year.
Though our anonymous donor’s name will not be inscribed on a plaque, the impact of the gift will be “written in the stars.” This gift also signals a commitment to the mission and values of Rising Sun that we all hold so dear and will help to light the way to a bright future.Read more...
