We have an amazing opportunity at CEF, and we’re hoping you can help! Between now and May 31, your gifts to CEF will be matched dollar-for-dollar by a generous $10,000 challenge grant.

With this matching challenge, we’re asking for your support to create a new fund at CEF: the Fearless Fund. This fund is inspired by the relentless spirit of creativity and boldness that constitutes CEF’s approach. It is named after a saying that a board member dubbed to be CEF’s motto: “Be Fearless. Love Everyone.”

There are always new ideas emerging out of CEF, and the Fearless Fund will enable us to take on these new initiatives. Your gift will fuel our courage to say “Yes!” in response to local challenges, and to work together with Members to come up with beautiful and creative community solutions.

Thank you so much for your fearless generosity and belief in CEF’s Members! This year, you helped 145 Members gain jobs, 132 Members move into housing, and over 1,000 Members to connect to much-needed support and community. We are so grateful for your partnership.

With gratitude from CEF’s Co-Directors,

Maggie West Jon Young Janet Xiao
