Last week, the North Star Fund summer sustainer challenge came to a close and the results are in! Drumroll, please…

#PeoplePoweredPhilanthropy was head to head between me and Mayra Hidalgo Salazar, our Hudson Valley program officer, and we ended up with a tie! Many thanks to Mayra, Adam Liebowitz, Alvarez Symonette, Jennifer Flynn Walker, and Zahida Pirani for participating in our friendly contest to bring in more monthly sustainers than we’ve ever achieved in a single campaign.

Thanks to these new sustainers who answered the call to action. Because of the commitment of donors like you, we surpassed our goal and doubled the number of sustainers in our diverse and inspiring community of supporters! Mayra and I will be celebrating with ice cream, and our deepest thanks go out to all of you for investing in North Star Fund and our brave community of organizers, resistors, and visionaries.
