The Optimist International Foundation asks for your support

As 2012 came to a close, the Optimist International Foundation shared 10 Optimistic Reflections with10 consecutive emails that looked back at the work that was done in our communities thanks to the support of the Foundation. In its final message, it said:

“The Foundation is extremely thankful for all the high points the past year has brought! Some of the highlights to mention would include:
  • A fantastic 40th Anniversary celebration, in which the committee raised over $25,000 to support the Foundation.
  • Welcoming another great Board Member to the team.
  • A raise in unrestricted giving over this past year.
  • The Foundation being able to give $85,000 towards Youth Club Programs, $160,472 to Club Grant Program Grants, and $579,571 towards Charitable, Literary and Educational Programs
The Foundation would not have great moments like these to share without the generosity and support of our donors and volunteers. It is through the gifts that you all so selflessly give that makes a difference for Optimist International Foundation. In turn, this enables the Foundation to give support to Optimist International and allows us all to continue to make a difference in the lives of the children we serve.

'Helping Optimists Help Kids' not only describes our mission- it is a phrase that also describes our passion. If you would like to partner with the Optimist International Foundation this holiday season in working towards our mission, please click here.”

It’s the right and optimistic thing to do. As we say goodbye to 2012 and hello to 2013, please consider giving your support to the Optimist International Foundation. Thank you.
