Sample text about Long Beach Gives:

September 24 is Long Beach Gives, a citywide giving day supporting over 150 Long Beach nonprofits! I’ve joined the South Coast Interfaith Council’s Fundraising Team and hope you’ll help me support their efforts. Learn more about at https://donate.longbeachgives.org/south-coast-interfaith-council.

Sample text about the South Coast Interfaith Council’s fundraising goal:

I’ve joined the South Coast Interfaith Council (SCIC) Fundraising Team to help them adapt their programs for the COVID-19 era. The funds I raise will allow the interfaith and intercultural communities in Long Beach - and all around America -  to continue to receive free education and connection to resources regarding social justice, helping the plight of the homeless, youth empowerment, anti – discrimination trainings, and interfaith and intercultural understanding. Visit my personal fundraising page [add your fundraising link here].

 

Sample text about why helping the South Coast Interfaith Council is important to you:

Option 1:

I’m part of the South Coast Interfaith Council’s Fundraising Team, helping create communities of compassion among people of different faiths and cultures through service, education and celebration. Please visit my personal fundraising page at [add your fundraising link here] on Sept. 24, #LongBeachGives day, and help support programs that are important to me. Thank you!

Option 2:

I believe peaceful co-existence is absolutely non-negotiable among people of different faiths and cultures—especially now.

Visit my page at [add your fundraising link here] to support the councils programs.

Option 3:

I’ve found a community of peacemakers through the programs of the South Coast Interfaith Council (SCIC) —like the Interfaith Cafes that brings together diverse people to simply get to know one another and Courageous Conversations that provides a platform for issues such as homelessness, mental health and race relations to be discussed among those who want to make a positive impact and change! Please join me at my personal fundraising page [add your fundraising link here] as I help support them on Sept 24, #LongBeachGives day.

Option 4:

Write about your own personal connection to the South Coast Interfaith Council (SCIC) and why supporting us is important to you!
