Today is #GivingTuesday, a day when non-profits, like us, stop and ask you for help. With so many groups asking you for your dollars, I thought this list might help you understand why we are worth an investment.
It’s true, big donations are welcome! But the smaller ones, the gifts of $10 or $20, go a long way at Spokane Faith & Values and I thank you in advance for any support you can offer.
Top reasons to give to Spokane Faith & Values:
- You believe religion reporting matters
- You believe in our mission to provide in-depth, non-sectarian coverage of religion, spirituality and ideas
- You support our 50 writers
- You believe, like we do, that our contributors’ content creates dialogue that might otherwise not happen. This dialogue can lead to changed minds, better understanding, an increase in interfaith work and a more tolerant community.
- You value our commitment to Spokane
- You love the Coffee Talks as much as we do
- You believe Spokane Faith & Values is creating a community
- You believe Spokane Faith & Values is making a difference in this city
- You can’t afford an ad, but would like to help us with a smaller contribution
- You love one or more of the features on our site
You can make a secure donation online, here. Or you can write a check to Religion New LLC and send it to us at 30 Neff Annex, Columbia MO 65211 (be sure to put Spokane Faith & Values in the subject line!).
Thanks for reading and supporting us in 2013!
