Foresight Senior Associate

Goal Reached!

Thanks to all of our generous donors, the matching goal was reached by the deadline.

    $40,000 Challenge Grant    
    To Donate    

$40,000 Challenge Grant

Matching donations needed by 28 February, 1999
(because Feb. 28 is a Sunday, there is a one-day extension to Monday, March 1.)

One of our Senior Associates has stepped up to the plate again this year with a dollar-for-dollar $40,000 challenge grant to Foresight. This offer is good until the end of February.

This means that for every new dollar pledged by March 1, 1999, Foresight will receive one dollar more, thereby doubling your donation.

Qualifying as matching funds are:

In the U.S. donors can achieve maximum tax benefits by making their donations before Dec. 31, 1998, since they will be able to take the deduction against 1998 income taxes instead of waiting a year.

If you have questions about the challenge grant, or about becoming a Senior Associate, contact us at the office.
