Greetings CHAT supporters! We're launching our 2019 Annual Appeal NOW and asking folks in the community to give generously! We're housing more people than ever this year: 130 people in 45 properties, a 50% increase in the number of people housed this time last year. In 2019 we focused on getting more grants to fund large programs, on acquiring properties of our own, and on hiring some staff to provide more reliability and organization to our services and to extend our outreach to the community. We made good starts on all of those areas but as you know the need in Chico is dramatically greater.
Next year we would like to do even more in all of those areas in order to provide even more housing to the people in our community who need it. And of course we'd like to get to work on Simplicity Village which will require some large initial investments in infrastructure.
All of that work takes resources - and that's where you come in! It’s easy to donate. To pay by debit or credit card, simply go to our online donation link at bit.ly/chatdonate. You’ll see options for a one-time donation or setting up monthly donations. The monthly donation program is ESPECIALLY helpful to us, as these sustaining donors provide a predictable, stable source of funding. If you prefer to pay by check, please make your check payable to “CHAT,” send us a note with your name on it, then mail to CHAT, P.O. Box 4868, Chico, CA 95927.
CHAT is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, so your contribution is tax-deductible as provided by law. THANK YOU so much for your support! The love we've gotten from the community this past year has meant the world to us. With your support we can do even more next year!
