As many of you know, I am the CEO of Tall Turf Ministries (aka Camp Tall Turf), a Grand Rapids, Michigan based Christian youth development ministry committed to equipping youth for lives of reconciliation in God’s world. We seek to do this by providing camp and community-based programs throughout the year with youth from diverse racial, ethnic, and socio-economic backgrounds who are between the ages of 8 – 18.
I am writing to you at this time–with about two weeks remaining in 2011–because the amount of financial support we receive during these final weeks of the year will to a large extent determine what and how much we can do or continue to do in the coming year. Why? Because private contributions alone account for more than 90% of the income we need to continue our year-round ministry with our youth.
If you have not yet made your 2011 year-end contribution in support of Tall Turf, please consider doing so now. And, if you have already made your year-end financial contribution to Tall Turf, thank you!
Or, if you prefer, just send an email message to email@example.com and let us know that you intend to mail your contribution–indicate the amount if you know how much you intend to give–to us before year end. Our mailing address is: Tall Turf Ministries, 816 Madison Ave. SE., Grand Rapids, MI 49507.
Thank you for taking the time to read and consider my request on behalf of Tall Turf.
