Since March of 2012, Pathfinders has been fortunate to be one of twenty organizations that has benefited from the generous support of donors like you during the Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s annual Match Day fundraising event. Over the last four years, nearly 600 generous individuals rallied in support of Pathfinders and raised close to $433,000 – support that helps strengthen our capacity to provide critical basic needs resources – including food and shelter - to runaway and homeless youth throughout our community. THANK YOU  for helping us these past four years!

To our dismay and disappointment, Pathfinders was notified last fall by the Greater Milwaukee Foundation that they had decided to take a different direction and not sponsor 2016’s Match Day event. Knowing that the 1,000’s of runaway and homeless youth we serve each year need this support-especially during the first quarter of each year – we felt compelled to take collective action.

In order to ensure that our young people will continue to have the life-saving assistance and support they have come to count on from us, Pathfinders will be holding its own giving event called Share the Love . Share the Love will be held over the Valentine’s Day weekend running February 12th through February 14th. Our long-standing and generous supporters of Pathfinders –the congregation of Plymouth Church UCC – are raising $35,000 to serve as a 2-to-1 matching fund and help garner support for our Share the Love campaign.

Our overall campaign goal of $105,000 by Valentine’s Day is ambitious, but with your support we can raise the $70,000 needed to secure Plymouth Church’s $35,000 in match dollars and help ensure youth the housing, employment, and support they need to truly change their lives.

We hope your generous spirit will again be renewed during our upcoming Share the Love campaign, and thank you again for your continued support and commitment to Milwaukee’s youth. Please mark your calendars, watch your email inbox, and check out our Facebook page throughout the next few weeks for special messages and news updates about Share the Love.
