On July 3, 2018, Greg Daggett, a Director on the Board of the J.E. and L.E. Mabee Foundation, presented Halo House Foundations Executive Director and Co-founder Kathleen Fowler with a check for $800,000.
The Mabee Foundation had approved the “challenge” grant to Halo House in early 2017. The grant was contingent upon Halo House raising the entire $12.1 million budgeted for the capital project in 12 months.
On the afternoon of the last day of the challenge period we still needed nearly $200,000, and hope was fading that we could make it. Between 2 o’clock and 5 o’clock two generous individuals stepped up in the last few hours of the challenge period to save the day!
Thanks to all of you individuals, companies, and foundations who made it
possible for Halo House to meet the Mabee challenge, and to the J.E. and L.E. Mabee Foundation for your support of our mission!
