Amanecer Wins Challenge Grant from Weingart Foundation

The Weingart Foundation, one of Southern California’s major philanthropic institutions, awarded a $150,000 grant to Amanecer Community Counseling Services in April.  The grant, payable to the agency over two years, can be used for general operating support — a highly coveted designation, as the funds can be applied to various agency program or operational needs, at management’s discretion.
Central to the Weingart award is its status as a “challenge” grant. The agency must match the grant — dollar for dollar — through fundraising in order to access the $150,000 during the two year period of the grant.  “This is a tremendous opportunity for Amanecer,” states Executive Director Tim Ryder. “Every gift the agency receives during the next 12-18 months will be doubled, as a result of the Weingart Foundation’s generosity.”

Development Director Penny Raile is working with the Board of Directors to launch an immediate Challenge Campaign that will accelerate every aspect of the agency’s fundraising efforts. “From foundation grants to events and online donations, every dollar raised will go toward the Weingart match,” Penny explains. “Board and staff are  very excited about this award and what it means for the agency’s ongoing viability.” The Campaign’s initial goal is to raise the first $75,000 by June 30, 2011.
