$250,000 Challenge Met!
At the beginning of the year, we knew there would be a huge amount of growth for the Secular Student Alliance. Jeff Hawkins and Janet Strauss saw the need for unprecedented levels of support, and pledged a $250,000 matching offer.
Jeff Hawkins told us, "Janet and I love what the Secular Student Alliance accomplished in 2011. We are thrilled they have set their sights even higher in 2012. Building the secular student movement is an essential investment in our nation's future. We challenge everyone who wants a more secular future to join us in contributing."
You met that challenge last Friday night, helping us reach the $250,000 goal.
1,470 of you helped us reach this match. Thank you all for your generosity and support!
Because of you, we will be able to offer the highest level of service possible to our rapidly expanding affiliate base. We have grown to more than 360 affiliates, with more than 40 of these at high schools! And now, thanks to you, we are ready to offer them our services and resources in the fall.
Our work relies on the contributions of dedicated individuals and a small handful of foundations. It is only with your help that we can give every college and high school student access to a secular student group on their campus.
Thank you for making it possible to take the Secular Student Alliance to the next level by helping us meet the matching challenge!
