Dear Friends in Christ,
May you and your family rejoice with the world during this Holy Season!
Futures in Education has been busily preparing for another great year of events and fundraising for the families who rely so heavily upon the generosity of donors like YOU. We provide their children with the education they deserve and the best chance at a bright, successful future. At Futures in Education, we, too, are filled with anticipation, after reaching over $1 million in Angel sponsorships again in 2015, that we will exceed that magic number in 2016 to close the financial gap for all who qualify for assistance. During this season of Easter, I pray that you may rejoice by considering a gift to Futures in Education.
Each day at Futures in Education we work to provide the gift of education to financially disadvantaged students who would otherwise not be able to attend Catholic school. Futures in Education strives to find new ways to reach our development goals in the hope that one day we will be able to fulfill 100% of the need presented to us each year by those families seeking a Catholic education.
However, it is only thanks to you, our donors, who are called to great discipleship and it is you who answer with, “Here I am Lord,” responding to Jesus’ call to love thy neighbor. By reflecting on the opportunities given to you and your parents by the formidable education the Catholic Church made available during your time, it is my prayer that you will help provide the next generation of children with the same opportunities we received.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you who generously offer your time, talents and treasures to support the work of Futures in Education. If you have already supported Futures in Education this year, I thank you for your generosity. If you have yet to do so, I hope this serves as a simple reminder to give during Easter by visiting our donation page or by calling 718-965-7308. I pray that this season of light warms your heart and reminds you of the gifts you have been given.
I once again thank you and please know that you will be remembered in my prayers – please remember me in yours!
In Christ’s Peace,
Rev. Monsignor Jamie J. Gigantiello
Vicar for Development
R.C. Diocese of Brooklyn
