Matching Gifts

Reaching Out

Many employers offer matching gift programs to encourage their employees to contribute to nonprofit organizations. Some provide matching funds to support employee volunteer hours. Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount of your gift.

You can get a matching gift form from your Human Resources department and mail the completed form to The Sophia Way and we will do the rest.

A New Zest for Life

Edna and Yvette (names changed) are mother and daughter who were homeless for nearly 20 years. Most nights you could find them sleeping in their pickup truck…
The staff from The Sophia Way got to know them when they started visiting the Bellevue First Congregational Church. They befriended Edna and Yvette, helping to meet their needs and building a relationship. Finally, both agreed to come to The Sophia Way office and were referred to the Landlord Liaison Program, which enabled us to house them in an apartment.
The timing couldn’t have been better, as shortly after they moved in Edna became extremely ill needing hospitalization. Their case manager was with them when Edna’s doctor delivered the news that Edna’s prognosis was not very good…she was not expected to survive. But she surprised everyone! That she had a home to which she could return no doubt contributed to her willingness and eagerness to fight for survival.
Edna now appears healthy and contented. Yvette is focusing on her studies. Given that she is having some difficulty with her math class we are hoping to find a tutor for her. They attend church functions regularly and seem to be very happy in this community. It’s been a remarkable journey for both!

There are many more women like Edna and Yvette who need your support to have a new beginning. Help them by donating to The Sophia Way.
