Dear Friends of AACY,
We are extremely grateful to donors like you for your ongoing support. Your generosity and kindness helped deliver services to over 1,100 caregiving youth and their families from 17 middle and high schools throughout south Palm Beach County. It is only with your support that we are able to help these kids who are helping family members.
However, we still have a long way to go to assist thousands of other school children who are caregivers for ill, elderly, and/or disabled family members. In order to help more children and expand our Caregiving Youth Project (CYP) into northern and western Palm Beach County schools, critical funding is needed NOW to support youth caregivers succeed academically, emotionally, and socially.
To celebrate the close of another successful school year, the American Association of Caregiving Youth is excited to announce the launch of our first Matching Gift Opportunity! A generous, private donor has pledged to match all donations up to $100,000 -- but only until June 30, 2016. As a result, every gift made to this urgent appeal will be matched dollar for dollar.
CYP spends an average of $1,000 per student caregiver per year. This provides a combination of direct and indirect support services in school, out of school, and at home . You can change a child's life by contributing today to the Matching Gift Opportunity and doubling your donation!
Please take advantage of this Matching Gift Opportunity before it's too late. Every contribution you make to AACY before June 30 is matched dollar for dollar; so donate now to double your gift!
