Thank you for your generosity!
We cannot say enough to express our gratitude for your generosity in helping us reach our GiveWell Matching Campaign goals!
Two benevolent funders from GiveWell Community Foundation heard of LRC’s struggle these past months and offered a challenge that consisted of LRC collecting $20,000 by May 31, for a $20,000 match and then collecting $40,000 by October 31 for an additional $20,000 contribution. YOUR selflessness has enabled us to achieve both of these objectives!
With your support, LRC is able to continue delivering high-quality educational services to children, adults and families throughout Polk County. Thank you!
LRC Approved as Gardiner Provider
We are elated to announce that through our partnership with Step Up For Students, we are now accepting Gardiner scholarship students for remedial or enrichment instruction. Please give us a call at 863-688-9477 during our office hours for additional information.
Would you consider hosting a Giving Tuesday Facebook fundraiser? We are searching for interested individuals. It’s simple to set up, and doesn’t require much effort on your behalf. If you are willing, feel free to set one up on your own at fb.com/fund/LRCPolk or reach out to us by replying to this newsletter. We’d be thrilled to walk you through the process.
Equally exciting is that Facebook will match all donations made to nonprofits up to $7 million beginning at 8:00 a.m. ET on Tuesday, November 27. Even if you decide not to host a peer-to-peer Facebook fundraiser, you have an opportunity to maximize your support for helping students succeed by donating to LRC through Facebook on Giving Tuesday.
