As with many grassroots, not-for-profit organizations, our financial support has relied heavily on gifts from individual donors. Many of our supporters have been extremely loyal and closely connected to us, by attending our annual events year after year; providing critical year-end gifts; joining the Giving Tuesday movement; and providing monthly congtributions that help stabilize our operation and programs over the course of each year. We are so grateful to all of our individual donors and would not have lasted our first 50 years without their steadfast partnership in all that we do.
