Like many charitable works, donations to the network decline during the summer months. My best guess is that it is the time of the year that people go on vacations, get married and graduate. These expenses result in reduced contributions to works such as ours. In May (last month) we were $10,000 short of making our regular budget.
To help keep GBN on budget, an anonymous donor has agreed to match special donations during the summer. Donations received by August 31st will be matched up to $7,500 in total.
If you’d like to have your contribution matched, you can send us a check and notate it “Matching Funds.” You can also donate online through our secure portal HERE.
Thank you so very much for your consideration and support of the work of GBN.
