As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words but to live by them.” – John F. Kennedy
Thank you for trusting us! We will make you proud.
Just before the holidays, a donor challenged us with our largest matching grant opportunity ever, offering to match your gifts and pledges at the start of January up to $36,000 in 2017.
Together you met his challenge, contributing $38,048 by January 15th. Thank you for believing in us and empowering Thrive Collective to:
“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly, defend the rights of the poor and needy.”
By investing in us, we understand that you are trusting us to create hope and opportunity through arts and mentoring in public schools. Trust is our greatest treasure. We honor your trust with words of thanks, and more importantly with our actions. February begins our spring semester, when approximately 2,500 students will produce at least ten new murals, films, and more, and we launch a new mentoring program with our partner Cru at Grand Street Campus in Brooklyn.
If you missed the matching fund deadline, don’t despair. It’s never too late to contribute. Please give online right now, or by check payable to Thrive Collective, 8225 5th Avenue #323, Brooklyn, NY 11209.
