$25,000 Matching Grant

Celebrating 5 Years at Thompson Center on Lourdes

Thanks to the support of donors like you, the Thompson Center on Lourdes (TCoL) is celebrating so much more than an anniversary this year.  We opened our doors in 2016 with a goal to provide enriching activities for people 50 years and older.  This year marks our 5th Anniversary and TCoL’s commitment to ensuring that everyone can celebrate life through educational, wellness and social activities.  A commitment we know is driving positive change as our numbers continue to grow with over 3,000 participants engaging in more than 25 programs and initiatives weekly.  

TCoL is “Building Momentum”.  We know the value and enjoyment our programs offer to participants and their loved ones.  To continue meeting the growing interest in our activities, we need your support. You can help TCoL build on this momentum with a tax-deductible contribution.  We are so grateful for the $25,000 Matching Grant from the Bright Idea Fund within the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region Grant Programs and underwritten by Nicolet National Bank. Your contribution will go twice as far to grow our programming to further the Thompson Center on Lourdes mission. 

Here is what participants are saying about the Thompson Center on Lourdes:

With the wonderful activities and services, TCoL is such a great place for all of us” – Mary. 

“You should feel a profound sense of satisfaction knowing that you’re making the lives of so many people far richer” – Ed.

“We had such a fun time.  We were welcomed with so much love and laughter” – Jan

In 2020, even with the pandemic and temporary closures we experienced almost 9,000 visits. We are just halfway through the year and have already exceeded 9,000 visits! 

Please join TCoL in celebrating life for years to come by donating to the Annual TCoL Appeal and watch your impact be doubled!   

The more you celebrate life, the more there is in life to celebrate. Anonymous
