More Endowment Progress!

raised so far $40,050  
$50,000  

We are now over 80% of the way to reaching our $50,000 goal!  You are awesome donors!

Here are the words of our Treasurer Andrew Chaponda:

We are living in very interesting and challenging times here in Kalamazoo. The good part about it is there are people and organizations willing and already doing something about it. That is where ISAAC comes in. As a social justice organization steeped in faith values, ISAAC has become a critical and ubiquitous instrument through which God’s work is being done right here in Kalamazoo.

People of faith and people of consciousness in Kalamazoo are now able to live their values through contributions to ISAAC and its programs. Getting the ISAAC Endowment Fund fully funded is a goal we can achieve. I just contributed and I challenge you to follow suit. If you already did, thank you very much.

With its anti-racism, anti-poverty and affordable housing efforts, ISAAC has made it its central mission to be a force for change and development in Kalamazoo. As a member of Westwood United Methodist Church and ISAAC Board Member and Treasurer, I cannot overemphasize the need for a well-funded and resourced ISAAC. The ISAAC Endowment Fund is currently under development and accepting donations. When we reach $50K, ISAAC will begin receiving investment income. We are very close and your contribution today will make us hit that bar sooner. 

We can do it, ISAAC!  Together we can meet this goal and create long-term stability. I am already excited about our cooperation with the Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation (TRHT), Government Alliance and Racial Equity (GARE) among other alliances that will see ISAAC address various social justice issues affecting the quality of life in our city and our county.

I am challenging everyone reading this to contribute to the ISAAC Endowment Fund today. You will be forever grateful for living your faith though your financial contributions. Together we will improve the way the system works, touch many lives and make a difference. Let’s do it, ISAAC.

Everyone can help create this sustainable funding for ISAAC. Gifts of any size help—direct donations or charitable distributions.  Just write “ISAAC Endowment Fund” in the memo space of your gift and send it to:
