So Grateful for Our Supporters!
Friends, to say that we are humbled and blown away by your year-end generosity is an understatement! We're always so grateful when we are the recipients of a matching gift grant, a grant that a donor or foundation offers us that matches a specific amount of donations given to Young at Heart by our supporters.
After a very tough year, we were incredibly thankful to receive a $100,000 matching gift grant offer for year-end donations. We weren't sure if we would meet our goal with all the challenges 2020 has thrown at so many in our community. But so many pet lovers donated that we not only reached our goal on New Year's Eve, we surpassed it!
And we have more amazing news! The foundation that offered the matching grant wanted to be sure that everyone who was inspired to give to Young at Heart knows just how important your donations are. And so the foundation called our director this weekend to let us know that the matching gift grant amount was INCREASED! EVERY SINGLE DOLLAR THAT WAS DONATED OVER THE ORIGINAL GOAL WILL BE MATCHED AS WELL!
Thank you for raising $132,658 for Young at Heart, ALL of which will be matched dollar for dollar to help senior pets in the coming year! We are so appreciative of every single dollar that you choose to donate to our mission! Thank you for helping to provide senior dogs and cats with a safe haven to ensure they live with comfort, compassion, and companionship in their golden years. We couldn't do this without you!
Thank you so very much from the bottom of our hearts! The senior pets here are sending big woofs and loud purrs of thanks, too!
