A Huge Thank You to our Endowment Donors!

our goal of $50,000 
total raised $57,175! 

We went past our goal! Way past! So many awesome donors contributed to the ISAAC Endowment at the end of the year that we exceeded our goal of $50,000 and raised $57,175! December donations alone totaled $12,545! Hallelujah! This means that we will now have a “fully established” endowment fund at the Kalamazoo Community Foundation, earning interest income for ISAAC way into the future.

Plus, since we chose “Socially Responsible Investment” at the Kalamazoo Community Foundation—where we were the very first endowment to choose that new option!—we know our interest income will only come from companies that “meet a series of stringent environmental and social criteria in areas including environmental management, labor rights, human rights, health and safety, and diversity.

A huge thank you to everyone listed here, who has contributed to the ISAAC Endowment since we started it just two years ago! Your gifts will sustain ISAAC for years to come as we work together to build the Beloved Community.
