Dear folx, Happy 2023! We hope the year is treating you well so far, and that you are staying warm and dry and safe in these storms. We are starting the year of our 50th anniversary off with huge gratitude; this week we received our first $50,000 donation from an anonymous donor for our 50th anniversary campaign. We are so grateful to have community members showing up to support our work at this level. Unrestricted donations like this allow us to get deeply necessary things done, and to move into our new year more resourced and ready to go. In order to leverage this donation and grow its impact, we are running a match campaign. Can you help us match the $50,000? If you want to join in please click this link to donate $5, $50, $500, $5000, or $50,000, in celebration of our 50 years! Huge gratitude to our initial donor and gratitude to each of you who will help us match the initial donation. Here’s to 50 years of Pacific Center! Warmly, -Lasara Executive Director Pacific Center for HUman Growth
