We have some amazing news at Family Research Council that will allow you to literally double your donation. A generous supporter has pledged a $225,000 matching gift! This means that your gift of $25 instantly becomes $50 now. Your $50 gift becomes $100. A donation of $500 automatically becomes $1,000 to help defend and advance faith, family and freedom.
In less than two weeks 2017 will be over and with it, any opportunity to deduct your charitable donations for the year. Now is the time to take full advantage of this tax benefit as every donation to Family Research Council is fully tax deductible.
But there's another urgent reason we're asking you to give now. We're anxious to hit the ground running in 2018 with so much promise and so much at stake. There are important state legislative victories we can win with God-honoring policies. We are seeing promising pro-life legislation happening as taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood continues to get cut. Next year we could very well see another replacement for the Supreme Court which will be an all-out battle for the soul of America.
To meet this challenge and seize this moment in America's history, we simply must finish strong with our finances in 2017. It's extremely important that we end the year in a strong financial position so it won't be a drag on us after the new year. With so much momentum, we're asking you to help with a generous gift at this year-end to provide the wind in our sails into the New Year.
Our opponents are also ready to start right out of the gate and for them, money is never a problem. From tech billionaires to the Hollywood elite to millions of our own tax money, these enemies of liberty are ready to go full force. We cannot -- we must not -- be complacent.
