Doreen and I praise God for your love, prayers, and partnership with us. You support over 750 Northrise students, affecting their families, communities and our nation. This year Gilbert, one of our students and farm foreman, was elected to the Ndola City Council (read more). Two of our students were elected to the National Assembly (Parliament). Praise be to God! You are truly changing a nation one student at a time!
As we approach year-end, we are immensely grateful for your support. Northrise could not effectively change lives without you. Northrise has had a great year including the opening and dedication of the Campus Center and our largest graduating class in history.
However, these accomplishments come at a significant expense and we are currently projecting a financial shortfall of $125,000 as of December 31, 2016. Historically, year-end giving has been strong but this year it is more important than ever.
Now is a great time to send a gift of support.
That is because the Northrise Board of Trustees has generously offered a $50,000 matching challenge. Whatever you give will be doubled until the end of the year. So your $100 gift will become $200. A $500 gift will grow to $1,000. Please prayerfully consider giving and helping us to finish strong in 2016.
P.S. Friends, you have been so generous. With God’s blessing Northrise is doing well. We have just over 750 students! How good is that? Please continue to pray for us. We are so grateful for you.
