'Tis the Season for Hope: Embrace the Challenge & Double Your Donation!

DECEMBER 19, 2023

Dear Supporters and Friends of After the Harvest,

As we approach the culmination of 2023, the ATH team is filled with gratitude and excitement for the incredible journey we have undertaken together this year. We are reaching out to you today to share a momentous opportunity that has the power to amplify the impact of your generosity and make a lasting difference in the fight against food insecurity.

ATH is thrilled to announce our last donation match challenge of the year, generously issued by an anonymous donor. This anonymous benefactor has pledged to match every donation made through the new year, up to $15,000.

This challenge serves as the final piece of our overall end-of-year giving, a campaign that began with a $5,000 match issued by ATH Board of Directors President Randy Burdge. That challenge, issued on Giving Tuesday, was met with an awe-inspiring response from our community, enabling us to raise an impressive $13,708.61 during that period. Your support not only exceeded the $5,000 match but also showcased the remarkable dedication of our supporters to the mission of ATH.

Our supporters’ commitment and collective response have been instrumental in expanding our reach and providing more nutritious meals to those facing food insecurity in our community. The success of this challenge will become a beacon of hope in the fight against hunger, and we extend our heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you who participated in this impactful campaign.

Our journey, however, does not end here. We invite you to continue supporting ATH through our unique Impact Gift Catalog, which remains available for our supporters to explore and shop here. This curated collection of opportunities allows you to invest in tangible, transformative change. Each gift represents a specific aspect of our mission and the communities we serve, offering you a direct and impactful connection between your donation and its real-world outcomes.

The Impact Gift Catalog, introduced as part of our end-of-year giving campaigns, is central to our groundbreaking Urban Produce Push initiative. Launched in October 2023, this initiative focuses on ensuring every corner of Kansas City has access to fresh, nourishing fruits and vegetables. Your contributions through the catalog become catalysts for positive change, supporting our mission to make fresh, healthy produce a staple in every household.

Your support, no matter the amount, plays a pivotal role in our ability to make a lasting impact and create meaningful change in the communities we serve. We believe that together, we can cultivate a stronger, more compassionate community where no one is left behind in the quest for access to fresh, healthy food.
