Donations to ELCA World Hunger matched today



Dear friends,


I’m excited to share some news with you: Thanks to the generosity of incredible supporters like you, we were able to meet our matching goal of $110,000 in donations for ELCA World Hunger over the last few days.

And now, we’ve unlocked an additional matching gift! If you have not yet had a chance to make a year-end donation that will go twice as far, this is your moment.

Thanks to a generous friend of ELCA World Hunger, all gifts will be matched today, dollar-for-dollar, until we reach $60,000!

In 2018, gifts to ELCA World Hunger reached people in more than 60 countries, including the United States. From microloans to water wells, agricultural training to advocacy, more than 500 ELCA World Hunger-supported projects are making a difference in the lives of our neighbors around the world. Together, we join God's work in Jesus Christ's name for the life of the world.

Please give today and your donation will go twice as far.
