Last fall a group of physicians told us that they see the LCEC as critical to community health.
We were surprised.
We know that free, high-quality programming is great for kids. We’re clear that access to healthy food and steady employment is great for adults and families. We know that building individual and collective power improves our view of ourselves. And we can’t help but notice that being together strengthens us all. But now there’s research linking our work to good health.
So whether you believe in kids, adults, families or elders — and whether you see the arts, sports, academics, or leadership as the pathway to community health — your gift counts.
Make it SOLID and send a message to kids and families.
Those same physicians and their families challenged our friends and neighbors to contribute to the health of children, families, and our community through the LCEC.
Dr. David and Sally Allen’s lead matching gift offer of $15,000 inspired Drs. Parvathy Pillai and Sushant Srinivasan, Dr. Norm Fost and Renie Schapiro, and Drs. Dan and Rachel Bennett to add their pledges to it, resulting in an extremely generous $20,000 match.
Forty-one individuals, families and businesses made their gifts SOLID before year-end, and now their first year’s contributions are being matched to a total of $20,000!
Now’s a perfect time to make your gift SOLID by clicking “recurring gift” when you give online or contacting us to make a multi-year pledge. You’ll be in great company. One hundred twenty individuals, families, and businesses already have promised $477,330 in SOLID support over the next five years — almost half of the way toward our $1 million goal to build a SOLID foundation on which we all can grow, create, and care for one another.
