2017-2018 Donor Match Challenge

Longtime Executive Director, Valerie Hoffman, will retire this year after 23 years. We are excited to announce a special match challenge in honor of her service. Gifts made to the “Spirit of Survival Fund” within URR’s Endowment Fund will be matched by both the Board of Directors and a generous donor. The gift you make today could have TRIPLE THE IMPACT.

To have your online gift matched, please put “Spirit of Survival” in the message box.

For more information call Karen Sova at (989) 399-0007 ext. 100.
