Fundraising Update & Another Way to Double Your Gift!

Final Update on Hand in Hand Matching Grant: Total given by donors was $2,345.00. It was matched dollar for dollar so we raised total of $4,690.00. Thanks to all who gave! This will go towards our remaining agency fees.

If you didn’t get to give, we have another matching grant with the potential to raise total of $6000. There are 2 options for giving: online with paypal fee OR by mail.

To give online:

Go online to www.lifesongfororphans.org/give/donate. Select “Give to an Adoptive Family.” Complete the online form and “Fill in Family Account Number” with #3647 and “Family Name” with Brandt. Please select “Adoption Funding” for your Gift Preference and select “Family Specific” for your Adoption Gift Preference. Note: Paypal charges a fee of 2.9% + $.30 USD per transaction. Your gift will be decreased by this amount.

To give by mail:

Checks should be payable to ―Lifesong for Orphans. In the memo, note ―family account number” and “family name” (#3647 Brandt) to assure it goes to the correct account. Please mail to Lifesong for Orphans, PO Box 40, Gridley, IL 61744. Lifesong has been blessed with a partner that underwrites all U.S. administrative and fund-raising costs (TMG Foundation and other partners). That means 100% of your donation will go directly to the adoption.  This money raised will matched up to $3000 so we have potential to raise $6000 (they will give 100% of gifts over $3000 to us though they won’t be matched).

All money raised goes towards remaining adoption fees & travel expenses for the 3 trips to Latvia required for adoption finalization.  Our first trip could be as soon as this month or July so every gift counts towards helping us to complete the 1st trip/step of adoption finalization. Thank you!
