Thank You for Being a Fundraising Captain! Similar to that of Table Captains in the past, we are asking you to reach out to your network of personal contacts to raise awareness and financial support for C.H.A.R.M. To help you, we have created this webpage with multiple tools for you to use during this Fundraising Campaign.
Here's What We Need From You...
Email Your Contacts Similar to your efforts in years past to “fill your table,” we’re asking that you send an email to all your contacts, introducing them to C.H.A.R.M. and giving a short testimonial about your involvement with the ministry. Direct them to visit www.charmprisonministry.org to see some new videos that share the ministry’s vision and present compelling personal testimonies. Below is a link to a document containing two different email templates you can use when emailing your contacts. Feel free to personalize and edit these templates or develop your own.

Utilize Facebook Throughout December we will be running a Facebook Campaign to raise awareness about the ministry. There are two main elements to the campaign. Profile Picture Update For the entire month of December, we are asking everyone to change their Facebook profile picture to the "Give the Gift of Freedom" profile picture to engage people through social media.

Video Testimonies - During December we will also be posting video testimonies on the C.H.A.R.M. Facebook page. We need you to share these videos on your Facebook profiles to help us reach people not yet connected with our ministry. Videos will also be posted to the Media page on this website.

Follow Up with Five People After sending an email to your contacts, please follow up by calling at least five of them to encourage them to learn more about what C.H.A.R.M. does and to ask them to consider making a financial contribution.
Continue to Give We are so grateful to all of you who have been faithful contributors to this ministry over the past 3 years. Your financial support enables C.H.A.R.M. to continue leading incarcerated men and women to the hope and reconciliation found only in Christ. Please continue your support by donating to the ministry during our fundraising campaign. LINK TO ONLINE GIVING
C.H.A.R.M.'s updated brochure is available here for download.
"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to Himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ, God was reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making His appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. For our sake He made Him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God." (2 Corinthians 5:17-21)
