Generous Foresight Senior
Associate Pledges Matching Grant

Donor Pledges $40,000 Matching Grant

Follow our progress!

A generous Foresight Senior Associate has pledged up to $40,000 in matching grants for new Foresight Senior Associates and increased donations by current Senior Associates. To achieve the maximum match, we need at least 80 new Senior Associates or increased giving by current Senior Associates by January 31, 1997. Donors can achieve maximum tax benefits by making their donations before Dec. 31, 1996, since they will be able to take the deduction against 1996 income taxes instead of waiting a year.

The campaign was a success and all pledged matching funds have been attained by the deadline! Feb. 4, 1997.

Progress Towards Meeting the Matching Grant

January 21, 1997 - Fortunately we are now a little under 80% because:

Second Donor Pledges Additional Matching Grant!!

A second anonymous donor Pledged an additional $5,000. This donation creates a new target of $45,000.

The final tally will not be available until next week because Foresight will be accepting contributions mailed by Jan. 31 that are not received until next week.
