And the Staffistas

A special shout-out to
• Melinda Wiggins for securing almost $10,000 in donations from 109 donors in 84 hours!
• The STAFFistas for raising over $2,000 from 68 donors! 
• The Alumni Class of 2010 who were the majority of our FAC fundraisers this year- woohoo!
• And a Huge thank you to the FAC support Team: Nadeen Bir, Cris Rivera, Christine Contreras, Lynne Walter, and Joanna Welborn  

One more bit of good news:
Although we did not reach $25,000 with the FAC campaign, we have secured a matching grant from the Fund 4 Democratic Communities for $5,000 that will actually put us over the top by at least $2000!

A final thought: Donating to this campaign is, in the words of Executive Director Melinda Wiggins, “an opportunity to be a part of something larger than yourself--an organization, a cause, a movement of people that believe in making mistakes, learning from them, making change, taking risks, working hard, and taking breaks.”
