Dear Friends:

There are only four days left to get your 2015 tax deduction while investing in a more prosperous Alabama.

I’m so grateful for the support we’ve received from people like you, who have invested $15,541 this year.Our goal is to reach $20,000 by Thursday night.

Nearly 900,000 Alabamians live below the federal poverty line, and that’s why Alabama Possible works to remove barriers to prosperity. Our research-driven work is designed to broaden relationships and enhance capacity building, with a focus on addressing multi-generational poverty.

Donors like Amanda Wilson of Birmingham say that “doing the work of Alabama Possible makes you feel like you are part of a greater community.”

Amanda’s Husband Ed thinks that “there’s a benefit to us from being around young people and other people doing positive things.”

“You get more than you give,” says Amanda.

Amanda and Ed believe that it is possible for all Alabamians to lead prosperous lives, and that Alabama Possible’s programs like Cash for College, Blueprints College Access Initiative, Poverty Data Sheet, and the Community Action Poverty Simulation work to make that possibility a reality.

As you consider how to invest your year-end contributions, consider this: the need for charity will never cease until we create long-term change. Your tax-deductible gift will reduce poverty through education, collaboration, and advocacy.

Thank you for your support and partnership. Your participation is critical for our success.

 

Best,

Kristina Scott

Executive Director, Alabama Possible
