$100,000 Lifeline Challenge Grant - 18 Days to Match

By Jamal Edwards
Howard Brown

What a difference a week DOES make! In response to last Thursday's announcement of the Lifeline Appeal to raise $500,000 in 50 days, the community has rallied and raised over $100,000.

This Tuesday, we announced that a big hearted, anonymous donor threw us a LIFELINE of a $100,000 Challenge Grant. In just two days, over 115 donors have already risen to the challenge and donated more than $36,000! Because of these generous individuals, we are now more than a third of the way to our Challenge Grant goal, with only 18 days left to meet our donor's request!

The Lifeline Appeal Challenge Grant comes from an individual - an Angel in our eyes - who credits Howard Brown Health Center with saving his son's life. All donations will be matched 1:1 up to $100,000, enabling donors like you to double the impact of your contribution to the Lifeline Appeal.  But to take full advantage of this generous gift, we need your help to meet his challenge by November 30th. Please make a challenge gift today by clicking HERE.
We still need your help to turn $100,000 into $200,000. By successfully raising $100,000 in matching donations from individuals like you by the end of the month, you will trigger payment of the $100,000 challenge grant from our big-hearted donor! So, every gift counts.

On November 30th, the $100,000 challenge
becomes our $200,000 reality in lifeline gifts.

A gift of $25 is $50. A gift of $75 is $150.
Help us make $200,000 a reality!

Please act now and Make a Lifeline Contribution!

Your gift will be worth twice as much
and help trigger the challenge Grant!

These videos are touching reminders that healthcare is about a lifelong, lifeline commitment to the community. We depend on you, as many will depend on Howard Brown for decades to come to be that lifeline.
