Housing Assistance’s year-end giving campaign started with a lofty goal but had help from a major commitment.
An anonymous donor pledged to match all donations to Housing Assistance from December 15 through the end of the year up to a total of $50,000.
Housing Assistance supporters didn’t let the opportunity pass them by. Doug Scalise, pastor of Brewster Baptist Church, kicked off the donations with a check for $13,335 raised at their annual holiday fair.
Other donors were quick to join in, and the goal was met with a few days left in the month. The anonymous donor boosted the match to $75,000 – and supporters exceeded the new match before the new year arrived. The campaign raised $106,175 (plus the $75,000 match) from 241 donors.
“We are so grateful to have donors who understand the critical importance housing has on building strong families, strong neighborhoods, and a strong, vibrant Cape Cod,” said Alisa Magnotta, CEO of Housing Assistance. “We can’t thank you enough for your generosity.”
