Happy New Year everyone.
Our amazing donors came together at the end of the year and contributed over $116,000! The mail and online donations are still coming in. But, so far, a total of 95 donors, more than 1/3 of them first time contributors to IHT, helped us exceed our goal to raise $100,000 to build a forever home for a year-round working island family.
We are so grateful to all of our donors and are humbled by their support of our work and commitment to our mission. We’re looking forward to working even harder in 2018 and, thanks to all of you, we sure are off to a great start!!!!
We’re in the fourth week of our 2017 Year End Appeal and thanks to the generosity of 49 donors we have raised $62,760!!!
With only one more week to go, we’re very hopeful that we’ll reach our goal of $100,000, helping us to build a forever home for a year-round island resident. During this season of giving please remember that you can make a donation to IHT in honor of someone you love. Your donation is a gift that will last for generations.
Thank you to everyone who has already donated in support of our Vision 2020 to build 100 new homes for 300 island families in the next three years. Together we’re building a stronger community.
Happy Holidays from our house to yours.
We launched our 2017 Year End Appeal on Thanksgiving weekend with an insert in both newspapers and a mailer sent to our donor base. Our goal for the appeal is $100,000 which will help build a home forever for a hard working year-round islander.
We’re excited to report that, to date, we’ve raised almost $24,000 from the generosity of 33 donors! So far, our dedicated previous donors have been joined by 16 new donors. Together they have pledged their support of our Vision 2020 goal to build 100 new homes for 300 working island residents and their families by the end of 2020.
Understanding the urgent need for more housing within financial reach of year-round working island families is hard. Many people aren’t aware there’s a housing crisis on Martha’s Vineyard. There’s lots of information to share and it can be daunting to dive into the details. We’re excited to share our latest creation of 3 pocket size brochures (they fold down to 6″ h x 4″ w). Our goal is to provide our community with important information in an impactful, accessible format which can be inexpensively mailed and easily distributed. We hope we’ve succeeded!
