2023 Year-End Matching Fund Challenge

December 2023

Dear Friends,

I’m grateful to be writing to you as we prepare to complete our thirtieth year of ministry! What a blessing to see God continue to use our efforts exceedingly and abundantly. Thank you for being a part of our community and partnering with us in ministry as we work to empower and engage young people!

Today, I’m asking that you consider supporting the ministry in a very special way. A faithful group of supporters has generously offered a Year-End Matching Fund Challenge of $30,000! This means that every dollar given on or before December 31st will be doubled! This is an incredible opportunity to maximize your giving and directly impact the lives of our students.

As you prayerfully consider helping us meet our Year-End Match Challenge, I would encourage you to review the 2023 Executive Summary. There you can learn more about how God has used the ministry this year and how your giving equips the next generation.

One highlight that I would like to share is that this summer we served over 650 individuals through our programs, breaking the LEAD Summer Program attendance record in the process! Please join us in praying that we continue to see increased attendance in the coming year and help us spread the word to the young people in your life.

Our mission at SSI has always been to build a legacy. What a joy to know that in the past thirty years over 10,000 students have been impacted by this ministry! Every success SSI has experienced is solely due to God’s favor and faithfulness along with His provision through you, His people. We praise God for you!

So please, consider a generous tax-deductible gift this year. Join us in our mission to build a legacy of leaders and to see new generations of Ambassadors for Christ serving a broken world! Remember, every donation dated on or before December 31st will be matched up to $30,000.

On behalf of our Board of Directors, staff, and myself, thank you!

With sincere gratitude,

Joseph Cecil
President and CEO
