Wrapping up the Year!
December 09, 2019
Christmas is a season of giving, and I want to start by giving thanks. The entire team at Family Research Council is grateful for all our partners who stepped forward last week to help exceed our $100,000 #GivingTuesday goal -- with a grand total of over $128,000 received!
Every dollar given is an investment in the future of faith, family, and freedom in America.
You and I know well that the Left will not stop pushing a progressive, anti-Christian agenda. Activists on the Left will not be satisfied until there are zero protections for babies in the womb, natural marriage and biological truth on gender are considered obsolete, and religious freedom is quarantined to the four walls of your church.
That's why FRC works daily on your behalf to:
- educate policy makers on the principles at stake in their decisions,
- encourage pastors and church leaders to boldly stand for biblical truth,
- and equip believers to impact their families and communities.
Together, we have accomplished some amazing victories this year -- from reshaping the courts with over 170 of President Trump's conservative federal judges being confirmed... to the administration cutting off Title X taxpayer funds from organizations like Planned Parenthood that perform and promote abortions... to the Supreme Court upholding the Bladensburg Peace Cross.
For the sake of America, we must not stop for a moment. To keep this momentum going, FRC needs to receive $2.1 million in December to end 2019 on strong financial footing and hit the ground running in 2020.
That's why generous friends of FRC have put forward an increased $1 Million Challenge Match so your investment in FRC can have twice the impact! Your tax-deductible donation of $25 instantly doubles to $50, your $50 gift becomes $100, and $500 multiplies to $1,000 to help defend and advance faith, family, and freedom. But this incredible opportunity only lasts until December 31.
We understand that for some friends of FRC, $20 is a sacrificial gift, while others are in a position to invest a much larger amount. But whether you're looking to give a one-time gift, donate Appreciated Stock, or want to take advantage of your IRA charitable rollover for the year, know that every single dollar sown into the work of FRC will have a lasting impact for the biblical values that matter to you and your family.
Thank you again for standing with us in our mission to create a culture in which human life is valued, families flourish, and religious liberty thrives!
