Meet Your 2014 Long Island Shining Star - Chloe Gura

Chloe Gura 2014


My name is Chloe Gura and I am proud to be the 2014Shining Star for the Long Island Take Steps Walk for the Crohn’s   and Colitis Foundation.


I am currently a sophomore in high school and I was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease when I was in third grade.  I am very familiar  with the suffering Crohn’s can cause - both of my siblings have the  disease as well, and between the three of us we have experienced  most of the devastating things caused by the disease.  – From  stomachaches and weight loss to nasal tube feedings and  surgery, Crohn’s can have a huge impact on your life.  Read more about Chloe - CLICK HERE

 


FUNDRAISING TIP/MATCHING GIFTS: Have you been matched?

Matching-gifts are an easy way to significantly increase the impact of your contributions. Many companies around the country donate funds to match gifts made by their employees to non-profit organizations. A dollar-for-dollar match is common, and some companies will even contribute up to two or three dollars for each dollar an employee gives.  Some even match gifts made by retirees and spouses!

So what are you waiting for? Ask your company today if it offers a matching-gift program, and request a matching-gift form. Send us the completed and signed form via mail, email or fax and we will do the rest.
