Hope for the Future Celebrates 10 Years

Dear friends,

Thanks to you 12,000 children have received the help they need to obtain a faith centered, nurturing, and quality education in the Catholic schools of the Archdiocese of San Antonio. On behalf of these children, thank you for enriching their lives and giving them a priceless opportunity to learn and grow.

Joel is in high school; his mom, a single mother, was recently diagnosed with cancer. Mom had been a nurse practitioner, but now cannot work due to her treatments. She wasn’t sure how she would pay for tuition for this school year. Hope for the Future stepped in, as we have done many times over the past 10 years, and made a difference that kept Joel in school. Mom wrote to us in a thank you note that, “It is at times like this that I know I’m not alone. I love my Catholic faith and people like you in my Catholic community. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for such generosity.” Without your help, Joel and his Mom would be in a very different situation. Today, he is getting ready for final exams.

Every day, your support makes stories like Joel’s possible.

Today, we’re celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the founding of Hope for the Future. With that celebration, we are launching our 2016 Year-End Campaign called “Ten More!”. Our goal is to help an additional 10 students at each of our 43 Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of San Antonio. With the “Ten More” campaign, 430 more children can be helped and our wait list will be virtually eliminated. You see, even though we helped more than 2,000 children last year, there are still almost 500 on our waiting list that we couldn’t help, because we don’t have the resources to do so.

That’s why our goal for this campaign is to raise $215,000 by December 31st. If we raise that amount, we’ll be able to tell each school that next year we will help “Ten More”.

We need your help to make it happen.

Would you be willing to make a special year-end donation of $50, $100 or whatever you can afford to help us meet our goal and help ten more kids at each of our Catholic schools?

We simply can’t do it without you. Your support will make a real, lasting impact in the lives of those who are still in need.

Please, click here to make your donation now. The future of hundreds of kids like Joel are at stake.

Thank you for your continued support and friendship.

With gratitude and many blessings for a Merry Christmas,

Amy Hone
