Donate Today! $20,000 Matching Grant

IMAGINE is our chosen word for 2022, and here at the Thompson Center on Lourdes; we imagine a place with more participants, more programs, and more opportunities. Today, I invite you to imagine what we could spark together.

Have you ever imagined what might be possible with an additional $20,000 here at TCoL and the impact it could make? Imagine, because donations this month will go twice as far thanks to the generous donation from the Otto Bremer Trust. Every single gift will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $20,000.

I’ve always loved inspirational quotes, so I want to leave you with two that I came across that seemed to fit with our theme. 

“Everyone has the fire, but the champions know when to ignite the spark.”– by Amit Ray

“You have to find what sparks a light in you so that in your own way can illuminate the world.” -by Oprah Winfrey

We deeply appreciate your continued support of TCoL.  Our participation numbers continue to increase, and we are thankful to have generous donors support the mission at TCoL.  Because of you, we remain focused on connecting people with enriching activities.
