This November, Prosperity Works set our most ambitious fundraising goal ever. On November 27th, #GivingTuesday 2018, we set out to raise $25,000 to put directly towards our programs and initiatives - all of which energizes and furthers our mission to power economic opportunity for all New Mexicans.
We are extremely proud - and giddily thrilled - to announce that with your help, we not only reached but exceeded our historic goal. The total we raised is impressive, but we're even more blown away by the number of individual donors who helped us reach this milestone. 90 different families and individuals from across New Mexico and across the country made a gift on this special day. We nearly doubled the number of people who supported Prosperity Works on #GivingTuesdsay 2017. That's 90 people who said, "Yes, I believe the best investment I can make is investing directly in hardworking New Mexicans." We promise to deliver a return on your investment.
We also couldn't have reached this goal without the grassroots financial support from local businesses and corporations who wanted to signal that they believe in the mission of Prosperity Works and they've got our back. That's what happened this year. In a BIG way.
Prosperity Works received a total of $10,000 in matching gifts for Giving Tuesday from sponsors such as BBVA Compass Bank, US Eagle Federal Credit Union, New York Life, New Mexico Mutual, Duran Central Pharmacy, Nexus Brewery and TLC Plumbing.
