Difficult Times...Difficult Decisions
In light of the COVID-19 Crisis, we have made the difficult decision to cancel Chef’s Best 2020. Chef’s Best is a mission-critical fundraiser so this cancellation will have a profound impact on our ability to serve our community’s most vulnerable, especially since the need for our services will undoubtedly increase in the wake of the pandemic. If you were an event sponsor or purchased tickets we are hopeful that you will consider allowing us to keep your payment as a donation. We will, however, make all refunds as requested.
We Need You Now More Than Ever
In 2018 you made it possible for us to assist 417 different households…in 2019, that number jumped to 516. It’s impossible to predict how deeply the current crisis will impact our community but we have already been contacted by people who were living on a thread before the crisis and are now out of work for the unforeseeable future.
Calling All Helpers
To compensate for the loss of Chef’s Best funding, which compromises almost 1/4 of our operating budget, we are launching a remote campaign, FUND THE MISSION. As detailed below, you can FUND THE MISSION at one of three levels, each tied to a specific program area – or you can make a higher or lower donation of your choice. Our hope is to raise $50,000 through the FUND THE MISSION initiative. While this is ambitious, the goal is set to meet both the lost revenue from the cancelled Chef’s Best event, as well as the anticipated increased demand for our services at this critical time. Can we count on you to be a Helper?
Checks can be made payable to ACT in Faith of Greater West Chester.
