Project Morry Matching Gift Challenge

Join the Project Morry Community for a Matching Gift Challenge!

Beginning on #GivingTuesdayNow, May 5th through the end of May 2020 all new or increased donations to Project Morry will be MATCHED dollar-for-dollar up to $25,000 thanks to the incredible generosity of a small group of some of our most loyal and long-standing donors.

The youth and families Project Morry serve are already vulnerable, living in some of the most under-resourced communities in the tri-state area. Facing opportunity gaps and economic challenges under the best circumstances and because the Coronavirus is having a disproportionate impact on lower income communities and communities of color, our students need us now more than ever. And the support Project Morry provides is more important than ever.

Project Morry is responding to the needs of our students. We are providing services and programming on a weekly basis via phone, video, email, and social media creating structure and consistency. We are assessing student needs and connecting them to resources for technology, academic support, and food or financial insecurity. We are providing college readiness support to our 11th and 12th graders to ensure they are meeting critical deadlines, receiving test prep resources, and connecting to online resources like virtual college fairs and college-led Q&A sessions. Staff is actively working with students on stress management and increasing resilience through mindfulness activities, time management, and goal setting.

Our Matching Gift challenge comes at a critical time. Please consider making a gift now to help us utilize this match and ensure that Project Morry can continue our work now and into the future. Help us continue to make a difference in the lives of young people.

THANK YOU for being a part of the Project Morry community.
