$25,000 Matching Gift Fund

Temple University has established a $25,000 MATCHING GIFT FUND to help provide a scholarship and living stipend for a full-time graduate internship* at the Dialogue Institute and Journal of Ecumenical Studies!

Every dollar you contribute unlocks another dollar from the matching funds. Will you DOUBLE YOUR DONATION TODAY and help us reach our goal of $25,000?

We’ve already raised $1,000 toward that goal, but we need your help to seal the deal.

YOUR GIFT TODAY in support of this full-time graduate intern would provide the DI and JES with much-needed staff assistance for research and administration, and would significantly strengthen the DI’s capacity to expand its high-impact dialogue programs and training—including critical fee-for-service opportunities. CLICK HERE to learn more about what difference the DI’s programming is making.

And if you’re not interested in supporting this matching gift effort, please consider making a general donation toward our Annual Fund and much-needed general operating funds.

We are grateful to Provost Hai-Lung Dai and Temple University for this generous offer. And we are especially grateful to you for any support you can give, for partnering with the DI/JES to make a more peaceful world possible through DIALOGUE.

With gratitude,

Rebecca Mays                                   Leonard Swidler
Executive Director                             Founder & President

* one full-time graduate intern from the Temple University Department of Religion for at least the 2016-2017 academic year, and probably into 2017-2018
