We did it – we met the match! Over a month ago we began this historic match on Giving Tuesday with $13,600 donated on the first day. Since then, more than 220 people responded by giving and together we met the $125,000 match. With every gift being matched or doubled, we raised a grand total of $250,000 for our daily ministry work in the upcoming year.
Urban Youth Impact had never participated in a match this big and thanks to friends of the ministry partnering with us, we embarked on the journey believing the Lord would be faithful. We are excited for this upcoming year and witnessing what the Lord is going to do through the lives of youth in our inner-city community.
From all of us at Urban Youth Impact, we want to thank those who gave and chose to partner with us, and for being a part of what God is doing in our community. We now begin 2019 in a stronger position to love, equip and empower our inner-city youth and their families.
