$200,000 Matching Grant Opportunity!
It's so easy to donate on #GivingTuesday - December 2nd, 2014. Just click HERE, every dollar counts!
If someone offered you $200,000 you would take it right? And if you could double your money, that would be a good thing, right? And if we did something wonderful in the process, that would make it even better, right? You can help us to do just that…
In 1922, a 12 year old boy had a final wish to share the farm he loved with other children. Ever since, Camp Herrlich has been making a difference in the life of both children and adults, who get to experience a different kind of life and see that they CAN make their dreams come true. The donation of the Old Herrlich Farm has literally meant the world to thousands of people. It is our mantra that Camp Changes Lives—click on our video HERE to find out how.
We have been given the most exciting news, something that we have longed for – an individual has stepped up with a matching gift of up to $200,000. Yes, $200,000 to improve our facility and the Camp Herrlich program experience for you or your loved ones. For children you may not have met. The best part about this gift? With your help, we can turn it into $400,000!
Many people over the years have stepped up and made a difference for Camp Herrlich by attending or contributing to our fundraising events: Camp Changes Lives, Uncorked, our golf outings, our Friends dinners and the Calling All Angels Capital campaign. See this as a chance to make the difference that the human spirit longs for; creating the difference you want to see in the world.
This is an amazing opportunity to make the biggest impact on the future of Camp Herrlich to date. And it couldn’t be easier to be a part of this awesome time in our history:
