“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?” – 1 John 5:4-5 (NKJV)
The Murdock Charitable Trust, a Vancouver Washington-based Foundation has approved to invest a $239K matching grant to improve our technology infrastructure. They will release 50% now and the balance when we demonstrate at least 50% progress on the grant and 100% match.
The grant will enable us to strengthen our current online platform and deploy a version in French, Spanish, and Mandarin. The online platform will allow entrepreneurs and our partners from around the world access to the same level of service and support in their own language. It will also accelerate our vision to become sustainable beyond donation. We currently generate 50% of our income through earned revenue and our long-term goal is to have our fixed cost 100% supported by our earned revenue.
Thank you to all those who have helped us with the match. So far we have raised close to $50K towards the match grant. If you have not yet contributed towards the match, it is not too late. Please make your contribution today.
