It’s official! We are an IRS approved non-profit organization! 6 months and 1 day from the date we sent our application with only one minor request for additional documentation (like literally a single page from our attorney!). We are SO VERY excited to start making some serious fundraising plans… we’d love to hear your ideas! How can we raise some cash to create a scholarship fund for women who struggle with finances when they first move in? How can we raise money for replacing windows and the roof in the future? What other needs do you see in the community that could be addressed by The Micah Project???
Ever wonder why this project is so important?
This is just one reason WHY…
We’ve had so many amazing volunteers helping us to spruce up the house, but one particularly outstanding gentleman who has volunteered countless hours helping with painting projects at The Micah Project house. He happens to be working a 12 step program, and is working hard to make positive changes in his life. I asked him, recently, to leave me his address so I could send him a proper thank you note in the mail. He did provide his address, but attached was this note.
We’ve only been open a month and the Lord is already using this home for healing in our community. We are so humbled…
Check out this article from the Sunday paper to learn more about our project!
Great news on the home front! The inspection went well. Just awaiting the final word on the closing date.
We received a $6,000 donation from an anonymous donor this week! What a blessing as we look at the costs of opening in the next several months.
We also have an informational meeting/fundraiser scheduled for May 8th. Additional details are available on our FB page https://www.facebook.com/themicahprojectwi/
Thank you, as always for your continued support!
“You go, girl!”
