On November 11, while in the middle of the 2017 Fall Retreat of the AKRI Board of Directors, we gave ourselves a lofty (some would say, crazy) goal: If we can raise $6k in two weeks, we'll launch a Group Relations Conference emphasizing access and equity to experiential leadership training for underserved and diverse populations in the Baltimore area.

Basically, we had come to the conclusion that we're not currently able to launch the conference, given the projected financial losses. But instead of pulling the plug, we decided to give ourselves a two week fundraising challenge. This would be an unprecedented success for us, and reaffirm our commitment to sharing our work and having an impact in these difficult political and economic times.

In an effort to further drive success, two major donors have offered to match donations, so that for every $1 you donate, these donors donate another $2, and we get $3 towards our fundraising goal. But they've made this offer under one condition: that we get 30 donations of $100 or more by November 25, 2017.

Can we count on you to help us out?
Thank you so much for your support!
