Everything Urban Triage has been able to accomplish in 2020 is & was because of you; because of your generous donations and commitment to our mission. When we've made a bold request of you (our community), you've shown up and you've shown out.
We've served over 7600 individuals because of you; We've prevented over 1000 evictions because of you; We've provided over 4200 meals because of you; We've empowered and inspired over 1000 Black families in the Dane county area because of you and distributed more than $388,000 in resources to our community because of YOU!
And we're confident that you'll keep the same energy in 2021 and we'll have an even larger impact as a result of you becoming a recurring donor. We're asking that you give monthly to our organization to ensure the sustainability of our work. We're asking that you continue to walk the walk with us.
We know that leadership is uber important to our work. We also know that sustainability is intrinsically connected to our finances which directly impacts our work.
As many may know, multiple sources of funding are required to stabilize the mission and the impact of any nonprofit. Reliance on single-source grants or affluent donors could result in a significant loss of funding in the blink of an eye. To protect our organization from this we have to lean on you, our community. We have to cultivate recurring donations from those who support the work and believe in the mission of Urban Triage and who have consistently answered our calls to action.
With the support of a consultant, we've looked at our financial health and assessed what's required for sustainability and the area we need to cultivate the most is recurring donations. Support Urban Triage by becoming part of history by way of supporting our sustainability and capacity building, by donating monthly.
As you may know, we love audacious goals, and every time with your support we meet them. So, we're starting our 2021 with a goal to recruit 1500 people into our Co-Conspirator giving program/recurring donor program in the next 90 days. Each month we'll spotlight and honor our supporters. Each month we'll announce what we've been able to achieve and the impact on our capacity and the work.
Every quarter we'll honor Co-Conspirators with a private event and Black table discussions with our CEO, Brandi Grayson on various topics. In addition, donors who give for 6 consecutive months will be allowed to utilize our community space for their own private event (as scheduling allows) for free.
Join the change-makers. Join the work of standing in the gaps for those most vulnerable. Join the Urban Triage Squad by being a Co-Conspirator for Black lives by enrolling in recurring donations.
WE ARE BECAUSE OF YOU!! We are a non-profit organization funded by the people, for the people.
