Make Holiday Giving Easy for Your Loved Ones

package with red bowWould you like to make holiday giving really easy for your loved ones?

When they ask you what you’d like, instead of saying…, “Oh, I'd love a Christmas tie!”…how about saying, “Would you donate to ESTHER? It’s an organization I love, and the contribiution will help us continue working to make our community a more just place for all!”

It’s a win-win: Your family members don’t have to fight the traffic to shop; you have the satisfaction of sparking a contribution to an organization that you love; and ESTHER receives funds that will allow us to forge the beloved community.

We would love to be the recipient of holiday gifts in your honor from your friends, family, co-workers.  Would you consider suggesting that they contribute in your honor to ESTHER at holiday time?

Facing Challenges Together

Facing Challenges Together

Prison Reform Sidewalk OutreachESTHER has just received word of a $5,000 challenge grant that can double the amount of new contributions we receive in the remainder of 2019. In these times, when there are so many negative challenges, it’s wonderful to have this positive challenge—an opportunity to help make ESTHER stronger for the work of the future.

Now beginning its 16th year, ESTHER has an impact far out of proportion to its modest finances. Within our $90,000 annual budget, we support a full-time organizer and part-time office assistant, train members to work for systemic change on issues that matter to them, host public events on topics of common concern, and collaborate with other Wisconsin organizations focused on positive change.

We want to build our financial strength as an organization so that we can train more leaders, partner with more non-profits, build stronger relationships with elected officials and policy makers, communicate better with the people of the Fox Valley and beyond, bring about more positive change.

Will you help us, by responding to our year-end challenge grant opportunity?

Yes, I'll Help!
