  • It’s not about how much you contribute – it’s that you do contribute. Even a one-time gift of $5 makes a difference! It’s just one less trip out for caffeine during the month of November.
  • Every individual that contributes to the Empower Hope Fund and/or the Giant Strides Campaign gets a FREE On With Life t-shirt.
  • STATS: In 2020 staff contributions were at 66% , which was a total of 178 staff members out of 268 total. With 280 current employees at On With Life, our goal for 2021 is to match or beat last year’s 66% staff contributions! That means if we get 185/280 staff members to make a charitable contribution to this year’s Employee Giving Campaign, we’ll meet goal! Let’s EMPOWER HOPE…together!
