Message from founder & CEO Connor Archer
It has been definitely a year full of adventures for The Courageous Steps Project, as we now close to closing out some of 2016. To show you how our organization has grown in the past year, I would like to provide you with some increases in our initiatives.
In 2016, we experienced much growth in our Charitable Giving Initiative. From 2015 to 2016, our Charitable Giving initiative donated approximately 40.5% more funds. $11,100 went to organizations in Eastern Maine that continue to help children and young adults with developmental challenges.
The Wishlist Initiative, launched this year, helped two classroom teachers in Maine.
Our Back-To-School Drive allowed eighteen schools to benefit from our efforts. From 2015 to 2016, we increased our donors to 66% from 50% in 2014-2015.
In regards to our 'One Word' Challenge, we added seven schools from last December, to this December. In January, we are gearing up for an intense beginning for our 'One Word' Challenge.
These are just some of the exciting numbers that we are able to provide to you, as we transition into next year, running as a soon-to-be 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
Of course, if you have any questions, please feel free to email me at: email@example.com.
