HELP US BRING MIKVA PROGRAMS TO
MORE YOUNG PEOPLE...
Your generous support enables Mikva Challenge to deliver engaging and meaningful opportunities to Chicago youth to participate in the political process. Young people in Mikva programs are canvassing for their candidates, pushing city leaders for policy change on education and safety, serving as polling places judges, leading projects to improve their communities and interning in the offices of elected officials. It is with the support of donors like you that we are able to offer these empowering programs that have already had a major impact on the lives of thousands of young Chicagoans.
Sara Martinez, a recent high school graduate, agrees. "I have always been a person who wanted to fight for what she believed in, but I was ignorant in the way that I did it," she says. "Mikva Challenge provided me with that knowledge on how to be smart, have the facts and go to the right people. I don't want to be one of those people who are always complaining about how they hate the system and do nothing about it. I want to be able to create change."
This year, Mikva Challenge has a matching gift opportunity for all new donors, lapsed (last gift made before September 2010), and increased gifts (gift amounts higher than your 2011 contributions).
