If you’ve kept up with our blog, you have read some amazing stories of life transformation in the past few months.
You have read graduate about Adam C., who shared that PEP taught him that “beauty could rise from the ashes of (a) brokenhearted young man.” You have read graduate Lance N.’s story about how PEP helped him to find his first job (and why he donates to PEP each month). Graduate David F. shared how he had never stayed out of jail for more than a year, but now has been out for more than three years thanks to PEP. Others, like Devon S. and Cristian H. , shared how God has changed their lives through PEP.
And all of that was just in October!
Just imagine the stories that you can make possible over the next year.
The Prison Entrepreneurship Program is rapidly growing. This past August, we launched our operations in a second prison in Texas. By 2015, we might be able to serve nearly twice as many people as we did at the beginning of this year… provided that we have the funding to do so.
You make these stories possible. That is why we are asking for your help today.
We need to raise $190,000 by December 31, 2014.
These funds will ensure that we can launch into 2015 with full force, rapidly expanding our presence both inside of prison and outside of the walls. Your gift will make sure that 100% of our graduates find a job within 90 days of release from prison and that their likelihood of returning to crime drops by 80-90%.
Help us Meet the Challenge!
Thanks to the PEP Board of Directors, we have the potential to match every gift!
- One-time gifts will be matched dollar-for-dollar. That means a gift of $1,000 will instantly become $2,000!
- Monthly commitments will be matched TWO to one based on their annual value! That means a commitment of $100 per month will receive a $2,400 match – making a $3,600 combined impact on PEP!
Where else can you make this kind of impact?
Your gifts matter.
Can we count on you?
