In 1998 the first Christel House learning center opened to transform the lives of impoverished children and break the cycle of poverty. In honor of the 20th anniversary and to encourage supporters to embrace automatic monthly donations, an anonymous donor is offering to match new monthly gifts up to a total of $75,000 according to Barbara “Bobbi” Bosch, Vice President of Marketing and Development, Christel House International. “This year Christel House is celebrating 20 years of making the impossible possible,” Says Bosch. “This generous matching gift is a wonderful way for supporters to double their gifts.” The match will be available until April 15.
Donations can be made to Christel House at www.christelhouse.org/donate.
