Thanks to a group of anonymous donors, every gift given to Ele’s Place Ann Arbor will be matched dollar for dollar up to $300,000 between now and Nov. 30 for the Home for Healing Hearts Campaign.

Ele’s Place Ann Arbor, the only non-profit community-based organization with a mission dedicated to creating awareness of and support for grieving children, teens and their families announces the “Over the Top-For-Kids” Challenge Grant. 

A $300,000 matching anonymous gift, from a group of Ele’s Place supporters, collectively will bring the $7,600,000 Home for Healing Hearts Capital Campaign to its successful conclusion. Pledges must be made before Nov. 30.

The new Home for Healing Hearts allows Ele’s Place to dramatically increase the number of children and families served throughout the region.  Gifts can be made over five years and those of $5,000 or up will be recognized on our donor wall. 

A few naming rights are still available.
