OUR DONORS

None of the work that Bethel does in West Side communities would be possible without the generous support of our donors. We would like to thank all of these individuals and organizations for making contributions in 2013 as we recognize them here on our web site. We greatly appreciate your support.

$50,000 in Matching Funds for ETP Donations

Interested in Donating to the Entrepreneurship Training Program? Bethel New Life has a tremendous opportunity to receive up to $50,000 in donations to the ETP matched by one of our generous donors. Help us reach this number and raise $100,000 to support emerging entrepreneurs on Chicago’s west side. If you are a new donor, a returning donor who gave to the ETP last year, or a donor making a larger investment, your gift will be matched.

January 1 – December 31, 2013
