Donate to CANFIT today to improve food and fitness environments of low-income communities across the country through December 31st, and every $1 will be matched!
Our fiscal year ends on Thursday, December 31 and we are still $25,000 short on our funding for 2016. Support from friends like you will help us bridge the gap and ensure that we can continue to provide successful programs as we start the New Year.
I hope you will consider making a special tax-deductible contribution at this time to help us reach out fundraising goals. A gift of any amount will make a real difference.
Thanks to a generous anonymous donor, every $1 you donate to CANFIT will be matched. This means you can help us fund academic scholarships, start a career pipeline for young people interested in food and fitness, provide trainings to community groups, and advocate for policy changes to improve the food and fitness environments of low-income communities across the country.
Your gift of $50 can become $100, providing supplies for a healthy snacks and meals class for an after school program.
Your gift of $250 can become $500, providing an undergraduate scholarship to a nutrition, culinary, or physical education student.
These are just two examples of how you can help us make a real difference in the lives of adolescents and the communities that support them. To learn more about our work, see http://www.canfit.org. Don’t miss out on this wonderful opportunity to double the impact of your support.
You can mail your check made payable to CANFIT/Tides Center (2140 Shattuck Ave., Suite 1110, Berkeley, CA 94704) to make a secure donation online.
Together, we can make healthy eating and physical activity the norm in our communities and fulfill our mission to change community environments so that they support good health.
