Join the Safety-Net Circle

Boston Rare Maps has come forward with a challenge:

If we can come together and pledge $500 per month in new gifts from the Safety-Net Circle of monthly donors, then they will give It Takes a Village an EXTRA $500EACH MONTH!!!

What YOU can do right now to secure this amazing match!

  • Convert your yearly gift to a monthly gift. Do you usually give $200 every year? How about $17 every month instead? The automatic payment is easy for you AND IT WILL BE MATCHED!!!
  • Already a monthly donor? Consider increasing your donation by $1 or $2. During this crisis, every gift counts, plus IT WILL BE  MATCHED!!!
  • Not sure you can make a large commitment? No problem! A gift of $5 or $10 every month still covers necessary expenses, like mileage reimbursement and personal protective equipment for staff. And right now it will go even father, BECAUSE IT WILL BE MATCHED!!!


… Did we mention it will be matched?
