In Search Of: $1.3 Million in Donations, 2,600 Scholarships

Posted on Dec 24, 2018 by Jon Dize - Funding the Mission

We recently ran the numbers, and $1.3 million in donations -- 2,600 potential scholarships -- were received from donors during the 2017-18 school year / 2017 tax year that has not donated yet this year. FYI, we call these report “LYBUNTs”: donors who gave Last Year BUt Not This year. The LYBUNT report is an important area to watch, for current donors are the best source for repeat donations, and we never want to lose a donor.Back to the statistics: encouraging $1.3 million in donations could translate into the following:
2,600 potential scholarships for families that want to provide a quality, Christian education in Indiana that they may not otherwise be able to afford. 2,600 scholarships for students in schools in Indiana... from Auburn to Aurora, from Woodburn to Gary, from the farm fields to the inner city, and everywhere in-between. 2,600 scholarships for students ranging from the 5-year-old kindergartener to the 18-year-old senior. P.S. Gifts must be received by Monday, December 31 for your 2018 tax year benefit.
