Giving Tuesday, this year held on December 3rd, is our largest annual fundraising event here at Prosperity Works. Traditionally, on that single day each year we set out to raise as many dollars as we can, all of which which goes directly towards our programs and initiatives - and all of which energizes and furthers our mission to power economic opportunity and change for all New Mexicans.
We are extremely proud to announce that with your help we raised $10,980!
In a jam-packed year full of fundraising projects both internally and externally, 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. We had over 40 donors who with their gift were expressing a heartfelt commitment to our work: "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 in 2020.
We also couldn't have reached this goal without the grassroots financial support from local businesses who wanted to signal that they believe in the mission of Prosperity Works by providing generous corporate match dollars.
We know that there are many wonderful organizations making a difference in New Mexico every day. Donors who gave to Prosperity Works on #GivingTuesday 2019 were assured their gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar by these exclusive partners up to $5,000. In short, this kind of support amplifies our reach and strengthens our mission in a compounding, impactful way.
So we want to send a very special THANK YOU to both these donors and our community partners. You've taken an active role in empowering real change to the economic future of our local communities. Your engagement and commitment inspires us everyday to fight for great financial equity and inclusion for all the people of New Mexico.
Again, thank you from all of us here at Prosperity Works. We couldn't do what we do without your support.
