Many of you have asked how things are going with the pledge process to support our new donation system, and I am very happy to report that well over half of our members have already pledged.
Not only have a majority of you already submitted your pledges, but the total contribution for these pledges is up over $20,000 from what this same group of members gave last year. In fact, for every 1 member that decided to decrease their level of giving, there were over 5 that increased it. So, a HUGE thanks to everyone who has already pledged. Our confidence in your generosity has definitely been well placed!
Now, we need the rest of you to pledge. It’s really important that we all take an active role in this process. If we don’t hear from you, we will send you a statement in July as we usually do, but we’d much rather hear from you!
If you have not yet submitted your pledge, a personalized reminder letter is being mailed to you. Better yet, why not take a moment out of your day and submit your pledge online, right now, right here.
Also, please let me know how you feel about the process so far. We’d love to hear any suggestions you have for improving what we’re doing or how we’re doing it.
Thanks again. We are delighted and honored to be on this journey together with you.
