Tell Others Why You Believe in New Danville

In the last couple of years, New Danville has benefitted from a few unexpected significant contributions that came as very pleasant surprises.  During COVID, a couple made two contributions within a few months totaling $50,000. There is no way to convey the importance of the scale and the timing of those contributions. The generosity of another couple made a record setting possible. We were fortunate to be able to host our Spring Thing (formerly known as Tea on the Lawn) in April. It was our most successful, profitable event ever.  

Strategic, planned fundraising is sometimes trumped by movement of philanthropic hearts that understand and appreciate the mission of a nonprofit’s cause. Sometimes that movement comes from the donor’s own discovery process and sometimes it comes from another donor making a connection. If you appreciate what New Danville does and the heart with which it does it, please spread the word: share the Wranglers’ Ballad music video or The Wrangler Gazette newsletter, too. You never know whose heart you may be affecting.

Thank you for the many ways you make it possible for Wranglers to live, learn, work and grow.

Please feel free to contact me at 936-253-5757 or to learn more about the many ways that gifts affect lives at New Danville.
