By the grace of God and lots of elbow grease from dedicated volunteers, we have had a presence on the sidewalk nearly 30 hours per week. This means that we have had more and more turnarounds, blessed moments when women leave Planned Parenthood, very often crossing the street to go to the Women’s Care Center.
But, with abortions-only at Planned Parenthood and a national movement to defund the abortion giant, it’s not time to rest on our laurels. It’s time to TURN UP THE HEAT!
Vigil for Life intends to hire a part-time executive director who will complement and expand the work of our volunteers. Building on our foundation, we believe that this executive director can build our vigil and, in God’s time, close down Planned Parenthood.
Already, some trailblazers have made pledges of on-going monthly support of $25, $50 or $100 toward the $25,000 ($20,000 for salary with $5,000 for taxes) we need to raise annually. We are steadily working our way toward this $25,000 goal.
While Vigil for Life will be funding our executive director position, Pro-Life Wisconsin will be administering payroll and taxes for us. The monthly gifts will be directed to Pro-Life Wisconsin’s Education Fund and set aside for this position. The Pro-Life Wisconsin Education Fund is designed so that gifts may be up to 100% tax-deductible! Once we have $25,000 per year pledged through monthly gifts, we will actually begin funding the position.
If you can take this generous step, please reply to this contact Gwen Finnegan at (608) 393-8545 or firstname.lastname@example.org. She will put you in touch with the Vigil for Life board of directors.
If we want to end abortion in Madison – which we sincerely do—we must accelerate our life-saving outreach and prayer vigil coverage on the sidewalk. This executive director position is the next logical step. With Planned Parenthood performing abortions only, the time for the next step is now. It’s time to press forward!
