A Note from Sil on The Leon Levine Foundation Match

Dear friend and supporter,

ourBRIDGE for KIDS was honored to receive a matching grant from The Leon Levine Foundation earlier this year. The Foundation will match up to $20,000 in New, Increased, or Lapsed Donor(*) contributions received by May 31, 2018. Please consider giving today!

We are so grateful for your support, and with The Leon Levine Foundation’s match, your gift will multiply to help kids like Nelson, who says he wants to be a police officer when he grows up. Nelson arrived in Charlotte last year from Honduras, fleeing violence and threats.  While the transition is still difficult for him, his mom says he feels safe and much happier! Nelson loves working on science projects at ourBRIDGE and Ms. Linda, our literacy facilitator, says Nelson is making great progress in reading fluency.

*What gifts will The Leon Levine Foundation match?

  • New Donors: you already support ourBRIDGE with your time and treasure because you know the program is changing the lives of young immigrant and refugee children in Charlotte. Would you consider forwarding this request to friends or family that are new to ourBRIDGE and telling them why you give?
  • Increased Donations: any amount that you give over the amount you gave last year will be matched! Please consider increasing your donation from last year and The Leon Levine Foundation will make that increase double!
  • Lapsed Donors: Did you forget to give to ourBRIDGE in 2017? If you give by May 31, your entire gift will be doubled!

Thank you in advance for helping us meet this match and helping Nelson and all of the ourBRIDGE KIDS with your contribution today!
