Fall is officially upon us. The air is crisper, leaves are falling, and before you know it, the holiday season will be upon us. For those of you who have attended the Gala in past years, you have not missed an invitation. Later this month we will share some exciting news regarding how your gift will have DOUBLE the impact through a campaign made possible by a generous foundation (no tux or formal required)! We also have an exciting new website launch within the next few weeks that we can’t wait to share with you. Stay tuned for an eblast within the next few weeks.
In the meantime, we currently are still on track to graduate 40 students by the end of the year (twice as many as 2022). While our tuition remains free to students, the cost to us for the extensive training and support offered to each student over the course of two years remains around $42,000. With an ambitious goal of increasing our annual student number to 80 over the next two years to reach our capacity, we need your help now more than ever. We have increased our team to support these efforts and now have a large building to maintain as well—all while growing two new businesses that just began this past spring.
As you may start planning your year-end gifts, I ask you to consider Pawsperity. We are just getting started in our next chapter and hope you will be part of our continued journey to make a real difference to those in need!
