With your help, we hope to expand our impact to reach more lives around the globe and break the cycle of poverty that is epidemic in so many countries today. Our goal at United Stationers is to raise $100,000 for Opportunity clients, impacting 1,200 lives in the first year – and with loan repayment – 2,500 lives by year two and over 6,600 lives by year five! With the help of matching funds provided by the local Councils, matching funds from the United Stationers Foundation, a generous $25,000 match from a benevolent associate, and your purchase of these gift cards, we can make it happen! If you purchase a $10 gift card, it becomes a $40 grant after being matched by the Council, the Foundation and the generous donor.
By redeeming your gift card at www.opportunity.org/redeem, you are helping entrepreneurs grow their businesses, providing them the means to better support their families. After choosing a client loan to support, you will be able to follow the client’s progress during the loan period via Opportunity’s email updates.
We are so thankful to all of you for partnering with us to make a true difference in the world!
Every dollar invested in Opportunity becomes $6 invested in microenterprises over the course of 5 years.
As loans are repaid, the money is lent to new entrepreneurs again and again, multiplying the impact of each dollar over time. Check out our estimate of your group's collective impact as your donations are recycled and reinvested!
