#GivingTuesday2020 is Dec. 1!

Thank you for being a part of our SIFAT Family. You’re probably reading this because you have been part of an international mission team, participated in a campus event, financially supported our ministry or somehow given of yourself to SIFAT. We would not be in our 41st year without you! #GivingTuesday is Dec. 1, and we hope you will find a way to be active in this global day of giving that celebrates generosity and kindness. Embrace the spirit of giving this holiday season.

Three Ways to Participate in #GivingTuesday:

  1. Share your SIFAT Experience. Everyone needs a smile and encouragement these days. Share one of your favorite SIFAT memories (funny or serious) on social media. Use the hashtag #MySIFATMoment, so we can share them.
  2. Commit to Pray for SIFAT staff, projects and programs. Help SIFAT by keeping us in your daily prayer time. Your prayers are heard and are such an encouragement.
  3. Donate to SIFAT. Generous donors created a $60,000 matching fund that will double your donation! Our goal is to raise $125,000. You can donate by check (designate #GivingTuesday) or online (see options below).

During the pandemic, our SIFAT team members and donors have stepped in to support the communities in which we serve in Ecuador in two vital areas—medical care and food. Many are struggling to survive because of the effects of lockdown and COVID-19.

Recently, Ledy Sanchez, SIFAT graduate and leader of our Atucucho project, sent a letter to us on behalf of her community. She is taking care of 80 of the most vulnerable elderly by providing hot breakfasts each week.
