Jill and Amanda met with a major donor to make a major match gift.

We have a couple of interns we were able to pay, and hope to get funds form ABA again to fund an intern next year. On development, they continue to meet donors. She thanked Ellie for her gift. She said they met with Rick small on a $20k gift from the Stonewall Foundation for education and training.
