Old Meets New: The 300 Club & Monthly Shareholder Program

In the early years of Share, the Board of Directors sought to find 300 people who would be willing to donate $10 per month—the $3,000 raised would totally fund monthly expenses. This group became the 300 Club. After 35 years, we have decided to energize and honor the original focus of the 300 Club and created the Monthly Shareholder program. We hope you will consider making a recurring gift to support our vital programs, providing life-changing opportunities to men, women and children in need in our community.
