The 2018 #GivingTuesday Campaign
As The Fellows Initiative grows, we need your help and partnership. During the 2018 #GivingTuesday Campaign, we are inviting anyone that has been impacted by a fellows program to become a monthly supporter of TFI. We know it's hard to make a large financial commitment to a nonprofit when you are getting started in your career, so if you're a recent graduate of a fellows program, we're asking you to consider starting with a very modest monthly gift - $5, $10, maybe $25. Our online donations tool allows you to set up a recurring monthly gift very easily. As TFI seeks to expand the fellows network to more churches, more cities, and more fellows, every gift counts! Thank you for partnering with TFI!
How will these funds be used?
Increase the number of fellows programs. In September 2018, we started the fellows year with 22 programs in 20 cities. We will start September 2019 with at least 26 programs! Our goal is to expand our network to 40 programs in September 2021 (TFI's 15th year). We also want to see new programs in regions that currently do not have them.
Increase the number of fellows. There are 232 fellows this year, which is wonderful; but, we have capacity for more. To increase the number of fellows participating each year, we need to increase the number of applicants, which means we need to reach college career offices, campus ministers and others. Our goal is to have 260 fellows next September, and 400 in September of 2021.
Improve our conferences. TFI runs two annual conferences each year, the Micah 6:8 Conference and the National Fellows Conference. These are important venues for fellows to see that they are part of something bigger than themselves.
Improve our tools and resources. Fellows program directors work very hard to run great programs. It's critical that we continue to equip and train them with great resources for teaching and leading their fellows. Providing training and resources is a key part of our mission to serve local fellows programs.
