2019 Charity Letter To ClientsSubmitted by Watters Financial Services, LLC on December 20th, 2019
With the holiday season now upon us, it is a time for all of us to reflect on how much we have to be thankful for. As we have done during the past nine years, in lieu of client gifts, we pick four charities and donate $500.00 to each one. We look to our clients for guidance as to the organizations to contribute to. This year, the donations are being sent to the following organizations:
Annunciation House is a volunteer organization that offers hospitality to migrants, immigrants, and refugees in the border region of El Paso, Texas. Since its founding in 1978, it has provided shelter, clothing, food, and other basic necessities for hundreds of thousands of migrants, mostly from Mexico and Central America. It also participates in advocacy and education around immigration issues and seeks to be a voice for justice and compassion, especially on behalf of the most marginalized of our society. Rooted in Catholic social justice teaching, the volunteers of Annunciation House live simply and in community, in the same houses as the guests they serve.
American Indian College Fund
Only 14% of American Indians and Alaska Natives (AIAN) age 25 and older have a college degree — less than half of that of other groups in the United States. This reflects the college access and completion crisis amongst Native peoples today. The American Indian College Fund, a 501(c)(3) organization, helps Native people meet their full potential by helping them access a higher education. But financial support is not enough. The College Fund also provides Native students with the tools, programs, and support they need to succeed.
The Cancer Research Institute
This year, several of our clients are struggling with Cancer. Since 1953, The Cancer Research Institute has worked to save more lives by fueling the discovery and development of powerful immunotherapies for all types of cancer.
The Alzheimer’s Association
Over the years, we have watched many clients succumb to Alzheimer’s Disease and other forms of Dementia. The Alzheimer's Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer's care, support and research. Their mission is to eliminate Alzheimer's Disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of Dementia through the promotion of brain health.
Wishing you a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year! If there is a charity you are passionate about, please let us know. It may be one of the charities we donate to in future years.
