Starting this Friday! February 24, 2017! 8:00 P.M.!
This is an online fundraising competition set up as brackets just like basketball season’s March Madness, only with non-profits being able to access a wide range of online fundraising tools for each agency to use and personalize!
In order to stay in the competition and move to the next round we need help from ALL of our supporters!

How can you help Beacon of Hope? First we need you to go to https://indianapolis.bfg.org and set up your donor profile as soon as possible; now, today if you have a couple minutes. Then ON THE 24TH text the “Free Throw Code” to the number BFG gives you and Lids will donate $3 automatically to us! Remember you need to text on Friday, February 24, 2017.
Next we really need your financial support too! If all of our supporters can donate at the suggested level of $50 each we can raise enough “Points” (or Dollars $$) and move on to Round 2 of the Tournament! Regardless of the dollar amount you are able to contribute we appreciate your support at any level.
Make sure you ask your friends and family to join our team and give to Beacon of Hope Crisis Center. Be sure to share on all of your social media accounts also. You can help us so much just by sharing and asking others to join in supporting us.
Thank you in advance for your support and may many blessings come your way!
Use the hashtags #BFG17, #BFGIndy, #teamBOH when posting about giving and why Beacon of Hope is your choice this year.

HOLD ON TO YOUR HAT!!! Beacon of Hope just received word from The Indiana Criminal Justice Institute that our Federal agency funding has been INCREASED by over 200% effective immediately.
We are beyond ecstatic and are proud of the clear vote of confidence this decision shows in our incredible staff and the excellent services we are providing direct to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault in our community. BUT HERE IS WHERE WE NEED YOUR HELP! Federal monies are always awarded with the condition that individuals and corporations in the community will contribute at least 20% of the money needed to fund the approved programs. In other words, the community that benefits must “have some skin in the game.” So, our funding has increased 200% and now our corporate and individual partnerships must increase 200%. THAT MUST START NOW. This is your chance to make a difference and to help stop the violence in your community. GO TO OUR WEBSITE AND PRESS “DONATE NOW”, SIGN UP YOUR BUSINESS TO BE A CORPORATE SPONSOR OF OUR AGENCY, A PROGRAM OR ONE OF OUR UPCOMING EVENTS. You can also help by spreading the word and sharing this message with all of your friends on each of your social networks. Thank you in advance for your help and your much needed prayers.
