HEALING SOCIETY

SURVIVORS’ premier long-term giving society. Pledge your long-term support with a 5-year commitment of $1,000 or more a year to sustain our mission for years to come.

Healing Society members can make an important commitment to sustaining SURVIVORS’ mission and annual operations into the future through a multi-year pledge of at least $1,000 a year for 5 years. Your annual pledge payment can be automated electronically through your choice of methods, or we can send you a reminder once a year.

Joining is easy, just send us your information using the form below and we will send you our simple Healing Society Letter of Intent form, which is non-binding and the terms may be modified by you at any time. Your multi-year pledge importantly allow us to budget operations beyond the current year. For more information, please contact our Development department at 619-278-2400 and ask for Scott or Andrew.

WHY I JOINED:

“I have been a volunteer Board Member of SURVIVORS filling the CFO role and head the Finance Committee for several years.  In that capacity I carry the responsibility to ensure we build long-term funding streams and financial stability & security for SURVIVORS. When they asked if I’d be part of the “25 for 25” campaign this year I immediately said yes! I have joined the Healing Society with a new 5-year pledge and I am honored to part of 25 new, increased, or extended Healing Society members as we celebrate the amazing 25th anniversary of our organization. I know that multi-year pledges help SURVIVORS have more security and visibility in order to plan into the future and I am honored to be part of sustaining this unique healing organization that makes our community more welcoming.”

– Loren Tarmo

SURVIVORS Thanks Our Healing Society Members who have made five-year pledges of $1,000 or more per year.
