Dear Friends and Supporters of PiFO,
We are so grateful for your participation in “The Ripple Effect” our virtual fundraising celebration, on Thursday, March 11. The “Ripple Effect” was broadcast LIVE from the Luis Palau Association in Beaverton, Oregon. Many thanks to our generous sponsors, our challenge gift donors, those who made a donation on the 11th, and those who are continuing to give towards this campaign!
To date, $192,000 has been raised towards our goal of $250,000. The ripple effect of your gift to Paid in Full Oregon will provide for another year of education for 25 students, as well as 25 computers and all necessary textbooks and supplies.
If you were unable to attend our event on March 11, you can view the replay of our celebration on our website and make a donation to help us reach our goal. Feel free to share this post with your family, friends, and social networks, so they can learn more about what God is doing in Oregon’s prison system and add to the “Ripple Effect.”
In addition to our celebration event, we were able to promote Paid in Full Oregon via a postcard mailing to more than 20,000 people and businesses. We created a full-page ad in the March issue of the Christian News Northwest newspaper (with a circulation of 27,000 copies at 1,900 locations throughout the Northwest). And finally, we sent multiple emails to more than 13,500 leaders through our strategic partnerships with Corban University and Serving Our Neighbor.
Together, we are creating a “Ripple Effect” that will continue to impact adults in custody, their families, and their communities both inside and outside of prison and throughout the State of Oregon and beyond.
