Newberry 2019 Year End Campaign

I feel so honored to do this tremendous work at Youthfront in this season. I am able to make a unique contribution that is making a real difference in the lives of people and churches. I get to work with some of the most exceptional people and leaders that I know.

As a non-profit, I cannot (nor would want) to do this work alone. My job requires fundraising to provide a majority of my taxable salary. Transparently, this fundraising is difficult at times as I am sure you can imagine. But I push through the struggle because I sincerely believe in the ministry that I get to help lead at Youthfront.

Year-end giving is an important part of our annual required fundraising, and normally accounts for about 20% of our total annual fundraising need. This particular year, we are in need of some additional fundraising to meet some unexpected needs along with our regular year-end fundraising. Therefore we are combining these needs with a 2019 year-end campaign. We are launching this campaign for two primary reasons:

1) Replenish lost support.

Every once in a while (and for a variety of reasons) some of our donors need to cancel their monthly giving. When this happens, I need to replenish those funds with new donors to maintain my salary. Our funding in 2019 took a significant decrease of over $5,000. This year-end campaign will help replenish some of the support we’ve lost this past year, and frankly buy me some time to try and find some new regular donors.

2) Replenish lost income.

For the past few years, I have been slowly building a side-business (Discover New Perspective) that utilizes my unique gifts & passions working with individuals and churches while also providing supplemental income for my family. The goal for this business was to become less dependent on fundraising as I continue to support my family into the future. Due to our family needs, I had to take a step back from my side-work in 2019 which created a significant loss of income. I am excited to get back into it in 2020 but it takes time to build this kind of work.

This campaign will be a HUGE help to address these unexpected needs. Of course, all gifts received are tax-deductible. If you have questions or prefer to donate stock, please feel free to reach out to me at: jnewberry@youthfront.com. Thank you for your prayerful consideration!
