    Make Malaria History

    We did it! Success in 2012!

    Thank you for your 2012 giving!

    I’m very excited to share with you a great milestone– the ELCA Malaria Campaign has met its 2012 fundraising goal!

    You know that the ultimate fundraising goal of the ELCA Malaria Campaign is $15 million by 2015.  (And we have great confidence that your generosity is up to that challenge!)  Along the way, we also have annual fundraising goals– to make sure that our Lutheran companions in Africa have the resources that they need to keep their malaria programs running every year between now and 2015.  

    Our goal for Fiscal Year 2012 (which ended on January 31, 2013) was to raise $4 million.  And now we know– we did it!  Thank you so much for giving your time, talent and treasure to this ministry. We could not have done it without you!

    By giving so generously in 2012, we ELCA members have fulfilled our promises to our companions this year.  And our companions are fulfilling their promises to us as well– by designing, implementing and expanding anti-malaria programs in their communities in Africa.  These programs are making a positive impact on the health of many, many families.

    Stay tuned to this blog for stories of how your 2012 dollars have impacted communities in 11 countries in Africa!

      In November you stated that $5 mil had been raised, is $4 mil the actual amount. I want to report the correct amount. Thanks

      Hi Lois! Thanks for your question. We report periodically about two different amounts: 1.) money raised so far in the whole campaign, and 2.) money raised in each particular fiscal year. This post was about our 2012 fiscal year– and we raised $4 million during that time (yay!). The $5 million that I talked about earlier was our TOTAL campaign fundraising at the time– which includes the money raised before 2012. That amount continues to go up! As of today, we’re a $6.45 million for the whole campaign. -Jessica
