THE POWER OF MONTHLY GIVING
What is the Compassion Collective?
Monthly giving goes beyond an automatic transaction every month. Our monthly givers – the Compassion Collective – are truly the backbone of Free for Life International.
This month is special. We are honoring our Compassion Collective family for their dedication to ending human trafficking and exploitation. Our community of monthly givers is critical to sustaining Free for Life’s unique efforts in prevention, rescue, and restoration. Each member commits to give every month because they believe in the vision of freedom for all. Their investment empowers survivors through restoration and healing every day.
One of Free for Life’s core values is transparency, and it is important to us that you know exactly where your monthly gift goes. Each month, you will be sent a receipt for your gift, and throughout the year, you will also receive specialized communication and updates about our programs before anyone else!
We are also proud to report that 85 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to our programs, 10 cents goes to helping grow and expand the reach of the programs, and 5 cents goes to administration. We know that every person who makes a gift to FFLI is trusting us to wisely and responsibly use it in pursuit of our mission. Respecting and maintaining your trust is one of the FFLI team’s highest priorities.
Every gift – no matter the amount – has a tremendous impact on the survivors and at-risk populations we serve. By giving $5 a month, you can provide essential medication to a survivor who has been rescued from trafficking and exploitation internationally. $10 a month will protect one child from being trafficked through prevention education. $30 a month provides books and supplies to a survivor scholarship recipient. Finally, $50 a month ethically identifies and rescues one individual from forced labor or sex trafficking through transit monitoring.
Monthly giving is very important to upholding the successful programs of Free for Life. We offer our services to survivors and at-risk populations at no cost to them. Without your consistent support, survivors would not have access to a flexible and renewable scholarship program tailored to their unique needs. Individuals would not be intercepted, educated, and reunited with their families through border and transit monitoring. And root causes of trafficking could not be stopped through a one-of-a-kind prevention curriculum. Thank you for ensuring these initiatives continue to make an impact in communities around the world every day!
This month, we are looking to add 15 new members to our Compassion Collective community – will you make your monthly commitment to freedom today? As an added bonus, every new CC member in the month of July will receive a Free for Life welcome gift!
