Dear Friend of the Well,
You are an invaluable companion to the Well for the Journey community. We thank you for your presence and commitment to the Well – through your financial support and program attendance.
As the Well continues to live into its vision and mission, we are committed to changing lives and our community. We live this out by offering safe, sacred spaces for innovative programming where individuals delve deeper into the whole person they are created to be. We can see the impact that the Well’s offerings have on our program participants in their comments.
“The Well has enabled me to adopt an enlightened perspective – to see the world with a new lens. I feel lighter and more available to all the possibilities of each day. I am grateful for the infusion of love and embrace the magic that had gone unnoticed because I was constantly rushing from one place to the next.”
– Helen Welde Doyle
This is one of the many lives that has been touched by the Well, and you help make this possible. Your gifts allow us to break new ground, increase our community reach, and fortify our foundation, as demonstrated by:
- Mobile Well initiatives with Oak Crest Village, Loyola University Maryland’s Department of Pastoral Counseling, and the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland
- New programs like Conscious Aging, Daring Way (Brené Brown), and Buddhist Footprints
- New quarterly Well-Come program booklet launched (Fall 2015)
- Continuous website, Facebook page, and email programming updates with consistent “For Your Journey”
We constantly hear how unique, important, and needed the Well’s vision and presence is for individuals, our community, and for our world. As we try each day to live out this year’s fundraising theme, Reaching Out, Inviting In, we ask that you join us by prayerfully considering a gift to help sustain the Well’s work. Our goal this fiscal year is $120,000. Last year, we raised $114,888 from 214 donors – a 23% increase over the 2014-15 fund year – with 48 new donors!
You may go online to make your gift or pledge at wellforthejourney.org/donate. This commitment can be spread out over several months or made quarterly until June 30, 2017, which allows you to stretch your giving over two calendar years.
Again, we give thanks for all the gifts you share – your commitment, your support, your presence, and your spirit.
