Peabody Challenge – Above and Beyond!

As we entered our usual late fall fund-raising season, the Amelia Peabody Foundation provided a challenge grant of $10,000 – as you know, that means they would match donations to ACTS dollar-for-dollar up to $10,000!

The very, very, VERY good news is, we not only met the goal, we far exceeded it! We recently reported to the Foundation that we raised $11,890.98. Contributions came in on Giving Tuesday Dec. 1, as a result of our annual Christmas Appeal, from some generous private donations, and from First Church of Christ in Longmeadow and Christ-the-King/Epiphany Churches in Wilbraham.

Several of our usual supporters made additional donations to help us meet the challenge – and that’s a beautiful thing! We also received encouraging notes with the contributions:
