Meet Key Club Member Jamie Stacy
This series will give you the opportunity to learn more about the committed group of givers who comprise our monthly giving program: the Key Club.
First up: former IPH volunteer and staff member Jamie Stacy, who continues to support the agency's life-changing work from afar as a monthly donor.
Why are you a monthly donor?
When I was a volunteer and staff member at IPH, I witnessed the incredible, life-changing services that IPH provides. The staff puts 100 percent into their work. IPH has a very special place in my heart. I wanted to stay connected to IPH.
What aspect of IPH's programming do you feel most connected to?
I feel really connected to the clients. As a staff member, I got to know the families in the neighborhood. IPH is making a difference and providing stability right down to each individual they serve.
What do you enjoy about being a monthly donor?
I love knowing I'm still a part of IPH. In my opinion, the best thing anyone can do (for a nonprofit) is to make their giving consistent. By donating a little each month, I don't feel it in my budget, but I know I've donated hundreds over time. It's more manageable and has a larger impact.
What would you tell others who are considering becoming a monthly donor? You've already connected to the mission and understand the value that IPH provides to individuals in need. And now the biggest way you can support IPH is to consistently give over time. Nonprofits need some level of predictability. Monthly giving allows IPH to forecast their budget and plan for the future. Monthly giving is the best way to support nonprofits like IPH.
