 Healing Hope Ministries Matching Donation Challenge

Healing Hope relies on donations to function and operate the retreat. Support from community members, businesses, and churches is necessary to keep the cost to attend low for families walking through grief. We don’t want the cost to be a burden for families that attend, so we’re committing to carrying this burden and know that through God and the support of all of you, this is possible.

We are very excited to announce that we have a donor that has committed to match your generous gift, dollar for dollar, up to $30,000. What this means is every dollar donated FROM NOW UNTIL THE END OF THE YEAR WILL BE DOUBLED. Wow! How awesome to double your donation and make an even bigger impact. We are at a critical time in our fundraising efforts and your generous gift will help us reach our operating budget of $150,000.

You can mail checks to Healing Hope Ministries at 30185 475th Ave, Alcester, SD 57001
