According to a recent article in The Chronicle of Philanthropy, 2013 is projected to be “one of the worst fundraising years in five decades.” A variety of economic conditions are at fault, including high unemployment, rising health insurance costs, and concerns
about the stock market. The bottom line is that both Bread & Roses and the grassroots organizations we fund may face significant challenges raising the funds needed to keep fighting for real change. Household budgets have tightened all over the Delaware Valley, but support for community organizing is more
critical now than ever. You can pitch in right away by making a donation at www.breadrosesfund.org.
