Dear Marriage Supporter: I wish I didn't have to write you about this, but I don’t know who else to turn to for help. NOM is in the midst of a critically-important Matching Fund Drive that began on Monday. We need to raise $100,000 to avoid making drastic budget cuts, and we're way behind. Can you help with an immediate financial contribution? Whatever amount you can give will be doubled thanks to a matching gift from a generous donor.
I have to be honest with you, right now we're running very low on funds and are counting on the success of this Matching Fund Drive to give us a boost so that we can continue with all the critical programs we have underway.
Senator Charles Grassley, chairman of the US Senate Judiciary Committee, said yesterday that he expects there will be another vacancy on the Supreme Court as soon as this summer. Other sources have said the same thing in recent weeks. That means that we need to be ready at a moment's notice to spring into action to urge the appointment of a strong constitutionalist to the Court, someone who will have the courage to vote to reverse the illegitimate, anti-constitutional Obergefell ruling that redefined marriage.
That's just one example of what's at risk if we don't have the funds to aggressively fight for our issues. We won't be able to do everything possible to press President Trump to make the right appointment, or to influence the confirmation process of the nominee. We won't have the resources to fight all-out for legislation to protect the religious liberty rights of people of faith. We will have to cut back on our public education and grassroots mobilization efforts. And we'll have to take a pass on participating in critical court cases on key issues including gender and religious liberty.
Even if you've already donated recently, I hope you will consider making an ongoing commitment to NOM by becoming a monthly donor. Your monthly gift will not only be matched immediately, it will matched each and every month for an entire year! That is an incredible blessing to us, and will make a huge difference in our financial condition.
Whether you can afford to give us a one-time gift, or can step up with a monthly commitment, please act today. We only have a few days left until this matching gift opportunity ends at midnight on May 1st. We really need your help. Thanks.
PS — Please don't let us fall behind. Every dollar you contribute now will be matched, doubling in effectiveness. Please make your contribution today.
