Please Remember Us This Holiday Season

 


Dear Marriage Supporter — We are very grateful for the friendship and support we've received from so many people over this past year. Your prayers and good wishes have helped sustain us throughout a sometimes turbulent but amazingly productive and successful year.

As the year begins to draw to a close, I'm writing to ask you to please remember us in your holiday plans and make a much-needed financial contribution at this critical time. And the good news is that whatever amount you donate now will be matched, dollar for dollar, thanks to a generous supporter who has pledged to match all donations up to a total of $250,000.

If we look back to a year ago, Donald Trump had just been elected President, and all of us were wondering what his presidency would entail. And while there has been considerable turmoil and controversy, we have been able to work with the Administration to accomplish some amazing things. Consider:

We helped repeal President Obama's illegal "transgender bathroom" order that jeopardized the privacy and security of children in our public schools.

We helped secure the reversal of Obama's disastrous use of the military to advance the transgender agenda.

We helped secure a government-wide directive that every federal agency and department must fully respect and accommodate the religious liberty rights of people of faith to live out their beliefs about marriage and other issues.

We urged President Trump to appoint a true constitutionalist to the Supreme Court, and he delivered with the nomination of Neil Gorsuch. NOM worked tirelessly to help secure Justice Gorsuch's confirmation.

Beyond our work with the Trump administration, we also won some amazing victories in the courts and in the court of public opinion. Most recently, we poured everything into the case of Masterpiece Cakeshop v Colorado Civil Rights Commission, a major case that has the potential of significantly improving the legal climate for people of faith to continue to live out the truth of marriage at work and in their daily lives.

I am cautiously optimistic for a victory in the Supreme Court, but win or lose we've got a lot of work ahead of us. This includes working with the Trump Administration to issue a formal Executive Order giving additional legal teeth to the recently-issued religious liberty directive, working with supporters in Congress to introduce and pass the First Amendment Defense Act (FADA), and working with leaders in the states to enact laws that similarly will protect the rights of people of faith.

Right now, our resources have been nearly exhausted with this latest Supreme Court battle which is why this year-end matching gift opportunity is so important to us. If you'd like to really maximize your support for NOM, please consider becoming a Sustaining Member of our organization.

As a Sustaining Member, you agree to make a modest monthly donation to support our work of any amount that is right for you, with a minimum donation of $7 per month. Some supporters contribute the minimum of $7, while others are able to give more. Because of this year-end matching gift opportunity, every person who becomes a Sustaining Member by the end of the year will have their monthly pledge amount matched dollar for dollar for an entire year! Your pledge of $10 per month, will result in NOM receiving $120 in matching thanks to this incredible offer!

Can you step up to become a Sustaining Member knowing that your monthly pledge will be matched for an entire year?

We've got just over two weeks to replenish our coffers so that we can begin 2018 with the funds we need to continue to make a difference. Whether you can step up and become a Sustaining Member or prefer to make a one-time donation, please act today knowing your gift will be matched dollar for dollar.

Thank you for your support.

Faithfully,

Brian S Brown
