Friends Feeding Friends, recently participated in their first year of the state-wide fundraising opportunity, WyoGives. In just 24 hours, the event brought together thousands of generous donors who collectively raised an impressive $3,995,729 for nonprofits across the state. Although Friends Feeding Friends fell slightly short of their fundraising goal, the organization achieved remarkable success, attracting 43 donors, including 20 new contributors who had not previously supported their cause. In this blog post, we express our gratitude to all the donors who made a difference during WyoGives and share our excitement for the future.
Friends Feeding Friends embarked on their WyoGives journey with high hopes and a target goal of $5,000 and 10 new donors. While they didn’t reach their financial target, they came remarkably close, securing $4,505 in donations. What’s truly remarkable is the overwhelming support from the community, as they exceeded their expectations in terms of donor engagement, attracting 43 individuals who generously contributed to their cause. Even more inspiring is the fact that nearly 20 of these donors were new supporters, symbolizing the growing impact and reach of Friends Feeding Friends within the community.
Participating in WyoGives for the first time allowed Friends Feeding Friends to gain valuable insights and experiences that will undoubtedly shape their approach for future events. By setting clear goals and actively engaging their supporters through various channels, they were able to rally their community behind their cause. The dedication and passion exhibited by their supporters played a pivotal role in their success.
Looking ahead, Friends Feeding Friends expresses their heartfelt gratitude to every person who donated to their program during WyoGives. The outpouring of support not only helps combat hunger in Wyoming but also serves as a testament to the generosity and compassion of the community. The organization recognizes that without the collective effort of donors, volunteers, and supporters, their mission of fighting hunger would be far more challenging to accomplish.
As Friends Feeding Friends reflects on their first year participating in WyoGives, they celebrate the tremendous achievements made possible by the kindness and generosity of their donors. Friends Feeding Friends is eager to apply the lessons learned from their WyoGives experience to future endeavors, with the determination to make an even greater difference in the fight against hunger in Wyoming. They extend their deepest appreciation to everyone who contributed during WyoGives and eagerly look forward to the next opportunity to unite for a better future.
