Today is the launch of our annual Fall Benefit: An Invitation To Be Extraordinary.
Donations of $250 or more will be matched, up to $50,000!
At Jubilee, we believe in the power of community to overcome isolation, create a support network, and build connections. The importance of community continues to be relevant despite the challenges brought on by physical distancing. One alumna recently shared how she grew stronger in her independence when she drew closer to her community.
“I stopped being afraid to ask for help,” she said. “I was going through a depression and I reached out for support.”
Most of us have this type of community built into our network. We’re supported by people who offer a listening ear, financial advice, a good belly laugh right when we need it, or maybe a loan to get us through a hard month. We have mentors, advisors, or that one friend who knows a guy who can get us a meeting.
You are where you are today because of the many people who opened doors for you, told you the truth, and gave you a heads up. They may not see themselves as anything special, but to you they are extraordinary.
For the women of Jubilee, you can be extraordinary!
Throughout the month of October, we have an opportunity to overcome the challenges of being apart by coming together in support of women who are on the cusp of self-sufficiency.
For many years the Jubilee community has gathered in person to support women experiencing poverty to build stable and fulfilling futures. A room full of 400 people, a resident or alumna sharing her powerful story, and a dynamic call to action through giving are all elements that make this annual event our biggest of the year.
Though we can’t gather in person this year due to Washington State physical distancing guidelines, we’ve expanded our Fall Benefit to the entire month of October! You can host a virtual event or online fundraiser and share the transformative work of Jubilee within your network. And thanks to a generous donor:
Your gift today of $250 or more will be matched, up to $50,000!
We hope you’ll join us in this special Invitation To Be Extraordinary!
