Dear Oasis Family,
Thank you for growing with us as we learned how to move San Diego Oasis online, for having patience as we figured out how to navigate the past 18 months together, and for being on this journey with us as we continue to create an amazing community that promotes lifelong learning, provides engaging programming, and offers an internal sense of belonging.
This holiday, San Diego Oasis is excited to announce a matching gift. Thanks to Dawn and Jonathan Doering, we have been given the opportunity to match all gifts up to $25,000! For every dollar you give, we will double it. This means a $25 gift would turn into $50, a $50 gift would turn into $100, and so on. Your gift will support our newest program, Bridging the Digital Divide, which provides low income seniors the ability to overcome isolation, loneliness and technology fears — a pandemic on its own.
With your $50 gift, San Diego Oasis can provide $100 towards the technology package we supply each senior in the program, which includes a tablet with internet, in-person individualized training, and access to a selection of online Oasis classes. This program is positively impacting those who would otherwise be left behind in this technological age. Your gift will make an immeasurable impact to local seniors.
During this holiday season of giving, please consider a gift now through December 31 to make the most of matching funds. Thank you for learning with us. Thank you for growing with us. Thank you for sending us your ideas, and for providing the opportunity for us to continue our work. As always, come see us in person, join us online, or call us if you need help.
We are here for you.
Simona Valancuite, President & CEO
