The Richard P. Haugland Fund of the Oregon Community Foundation has offered Looking Glass an extremely generous matching donation offer - all donations made to Looking Glass from now through June 25, 2019 will be match 1-to-1 by the Haugland Fund - up to $50,000! Any new donors or returning donors (those who have not donated for 12 months or more) will generate a 2-to-1 match from this fund.
To make a donation and help Looking Glass to receive these additional matching funds, complete the online form here or you can call us at 541-246-2257 or you can simply mail in a check to our Admin office at 1790 West 11th, Ste. 200, Eugene, OR 97402.
One main reason that the Haugland’s are offering this challenge grant is to support our Runaway & Homeless Youth’s Outreach Team - which goes out every day and proactively interacts with youth on the streets, handing out water, socks, food and talking with them about the resources available to them at the New Roads drop-in center. Funding for our RHY program is always a challenge and it became more of a challenge in 2019 when we did not win a federal grant that we had previously received for several years. Help us sustain the Outreach Team and these crucial efforts by contributing to this donor challenge today!
Another way to help us maximize this matching offer is to take part in our “Bike for Hope” group bicycle ride on Saturday, June 1st starting at 10:30AM at Dorris Ranch in Springfield. Revenue generated from that event will help us reach our $50,000 goal as well. Learn more about that event or sign up here.
Thank you so much to the Haugland family for this wonderful matching donation offer and thank you to all of our wonderful donors for helping us to reach our goal!
