CANI Connections
December 2013

Why Give to CANI?

“Even though it’s not safe, it’s all I have.”
This is what Janie Hartzell* said to the CANI Weatherization Inspector when he told her of the imminent dangers posed by the wood burning stove she was using. Janie lives in a mobile home near Shipshewana, IN. She had been collecting cast-off building materials to fix up her trailer for quite some time. But despite her best efforts, there was just too much to do and not enough money or scrap materials to do it with.

Read more about Janie's story here and learn how giving to CANI helps people like her.

Giving Is Easy Online

The season of giving is upon us. The holidays are a time for celebration, but for some families, this can be a challenging and stressful time. The work that CANI does to help those who are less fortunate means even more this time of year. If you are able to help, please consider making an end-of-year gift to CANI. Your support shows that you believe that all members of our community deserve to live happy, healthy, and productive lives.

Your tax deductible gift can be made online through our secure website.

CANI Endowment

Do you want to make a contribution to CANI that will help for generations to come? Consider donating a gift to the CANI Endowment Fund. This provides a continuing funding stream that supports the annual cost of providing services to the residents of Northeast Indiana. Until December 31, 2013 all gifts to the CANI Endowment Fund will be matched 100% by the Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne. This means that the effect of your contribution will be doubled. Gifts made in 2014 will be matched at 20%.

Your CANI Endowment Fund gift can be made online via our secure website. And remember, gifts provided by the end of 2013 will be matched 100%.
