RenewToday Campaign

Dear friends,

Thank you so much for your willingness to support our work! RenewToday is a social impact organization housing social change initiatives that foster mercy (WeDeliverPeriod), justice (WeWriteLife) and community (Brooklyn By Faith). Good Counsel is our fiscal sponsor and we are seeking funding to become an official 501c3. 

We exist to help problem-solvers including individuals and organizations experience a greater sense of mercy, justice and community. 

Campaign Goal:

We are using these funds to complete the process to become a federally-recognized 501c3. We will also use the funds to support upcoming programming including work to help girls and women experiencing period poverty access support.
