5/15/13 One day only to boost your contribution

Posted over 5 years ago by Theresa Waters

Hi fellow Nurse Practitioners,

I was able to make the open house at Interfaith and I was really impressed!  I heard staff and patient testimonials about the wonderful care our colleague Muriel Handschy has provided all these years.

I received a thank you email for attending that I attached below, and you will find a link to be able to donate by credit card and have a matching donation of 20-50 % and with the potential of a  "golden ticket" that adds $ 1000.   As we heard at the Pearls meeting in March, Interfaith serves our community medical, behavioral and dental needs and is deserving of our support. If you have 4 minutes, there is a You tube video that is great. So if you were considering doing this anyway, tomorrow is a perfect day to do it! 

Dear Theresa,


Thank you so much for attending our Open House last week. We were thrilled with the turnout and so happy to show off our new facility to everyone. More than anything, we are excited that we will be able to provide more services to 3,500 more of our neighbors. I hope you enjoyed the event as much as we did.

Thanks to the generosity of this community, we have made great progress in The Caring Campaign, having raised $2.9 million of the $3.1 million total project cost. 

Jon Martin, our Board President, explained in his remarks that we are reaching out to the community to help us raise the remaining funds so that we can finish our expansion debt-free.

He also mentioned that May 15tomorrow – is “Give BIG.” All credit card donations made on May 15 will receive a match of approximately 20% to 50%, with the exact amount depending on the amount of money raised by other Washington State non-profits on that day. All contributions, regardless of size, will also be entered in drawings throughout the day for “Golden Tickets” – which add $1,000 to the selected donations.

If you are considering making a contribution for our expansion project, this is a great time to do it, since your gift would be made bigger.

To participate in the Give BIG program and “grow your gift” to Interfaith Community Health Center, click on this link on May 15, then click on “Donate Now” –


Please let me know if you have any questions – about our expansion, Give BIG, or Interfaith Community Health Center.

Thanks again for celebrating our Open House with us, and for supporting Interfaith Community Health Center. 


PS – Additional information about Give BIG (and the Golden Tickets) is available at the link below.
