One big day of giving. A lifetime of change.

bdog2016-email-thankyou-web

On behalf of the entire ALARM family, I want to express my deep gratitude and appreciation to the many of you that participated and contributed to ALARM’s Big Day of Giving. Because of your generosity, we far exceeded our initial goal and our total from last year. As checks and commitments continue to trickle into the office and the dust settles, our preliminary estimate is that together, with matching grants, we raised over $297,698 in ONE day! Praise God!

We are humbled and grateful for your partnership and continued support of the life-changing work taking place in East and Central Africa.

Thank you for standing with our staff in Africa serving on the frontlines and the thousands of men and women ALARM serves. Training servant leaders, engaging local communities in trauma healing, peacebuilding, biblical forgiveness and reconciliation, and bringing the gospel of Christ to the heart of Africa—these are the sure ways transformation, peace, and development will come. Truly, one BIG day of giving does lead to a lifetime of change!

I am standing in awe this morning at the historic day of giving the ministry of ALARM experienced yesterday because of you all.

We are honored to serve our Lord with you.

PAST RESULTS AND FUTURE GOALS

In 2015, friends of ALARM, with matching grants of $50,000, were able to raise an unbelievable $142,025. You turned ALARM Big Day of Giving into a great day of generosity, and we cannot wait to see what unfolds this year as we prayerfully stretch our goal to meet the growing demands of our ministry.

If you’ve never been a part of a one-day, community-wide push to stand with the men and women of ALARM, would you consider joining us this year for ALARM’s Big Day of Giving? There is nothing quite like it! This annual fundraiser is the best opportunity for friends of ALARM to come together in a united effort to transform the lives of men and women in Africa. With $150,000 available this year in matching funds, your donation will be matched on this special day.

Thank you for partnering with us to equip and empower the church in Africa to be agents of spiritual change, social transformation, and tribal reconciliation. As we enter our third decade of ministry and continue the work of transforming lives in East and Central Africa with the Gospel message of hope and healing to hurting communities, we need your support now more than ever. September 15 is the day.

MORE ABOUT ALARM

ALARM was founded in 1994 after the Rwandan Genocide, when more than 800,000 people were killed in 100 days. The genocide demonstrated the desperate need for African leaders who are willing to put the needs of their constituents first and who will work to resolve long-standing, deep-seated tribal and ethnic conflicts. ALARM stepped into this gap and works to develop servant leaders in the African Church and community who reconcile and transform lives affected by conflict and injustice. ALARM has offices and national African staff in Burundi, D.R. Congo, Kenya, Rwanda, South Sudan, Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda.
