Dear Partner, Friends and Supporters,
There is SO much going on in the world right now. Lots of thoughts and opinions. Very passionate thoughts and opinions. So I thought I would keep the focus of this letter quite simple. Thank you. We closed our fiscal year the end of September and thanks to YOU we met our total financial goals for the year. We raised just over $1 million. Less than 4% of that came from the fees we charge prevention and counseling clients. That means because of your generosity, we were able to meet the needs of well over 1,000 individual clients (client numbers are still being tallied for the year). Well over 500 women facing an unplanned pregnancy were able to have access to free medical care, profession counseling, case management, mentorship, education classes and material assistance. Babies were not only born this year because of you, but they were born into the home of a woman that is more equipped to be a successful mom.
I am aware that there are over 1,000 nonprofits in middle TN… So many of them incredibly worthy of your time, talents and treasures and I am just grateful that we receive them from you. I do not take your support lightly and always work to ensure we provide excellent care, meaningful volunteer experiences, and use your financial gifts as efficiently as possible.
The annual report will be available in print and online by January and I look forward to you celebrating with us many of our accomplishments. This coming year our focus is on ensuring our services can be even more accessible to clients, especially those who cannot travel to the clinic easily. Be on the lookout for updates in our monthly EMMA blast, newsletters and social media.
Please keep Hope Clinic in your prayers. We welcome prayers for our clients, our volunteers, our staff and you, our donors. I pray for God’s protection and blessing on all of us as we enter into the holiday season and year-end. Finally, I humbly encourage you to consider how you can help spread the word about our ministry to other potential volunteers and donors.
