Grow The Vision: A SPECTRUM for the 21st Century

Thank you for showing up and joining us in supporting the Spectrum community and mission over the years. For over 50 years, this international community has stood together to share stories and independent reporting, reflect on the past and imagine the future, pose challenging questions, and spark new conversations.

Now, we’re ready to Go Big. With a thoughtfully developed new Strategic Plan and some new leadership moving into place, we’re organizing an array of major initiatives in the next few years to broaden our demographic reach, issues of interest and forms of impact. 

To provide the financial resources necessary to move boldly forward with the new plans, we are launching a $1 million Grow the Vision fundraising campaign. We are inviting members of our Spectrum family to make a campaign commitment which can be paid over three years to ensure the leadership that there will be sufficient resources to fully execute the ambitious and inspiring plans. Here is a helpful document that explains our Grow the Vision campaign in more detail. We would be grateful and proud to have your support for this as you have been a highly valued member of our community. 

There are many ways to help ensure the future of Spectrum, and each gift — whether large or small — makes a difference to furthering our mission of “community through conversation.”

New $1 Million Campaign to Grow the Vision 

We would be proud and grateful for a donation from you to our $1 Million fundraising campaign to support our ambitious new Strategic Plan. Two exciting things to know: 

Firstly, our board members have collectively committed $226,550 to the Grow the Vision campaign.

Secondly, a $100,000 donor match challenge has been offered by the board. Any contribution to this campaign by a new donor or someone who has not donated in the past three years (before January 2019) will be matched dollar for dollar up to a $100,000 limit on the cumulative total. To qualify for the matching dollars, a campaign commitment must be made before December 31, 2021, but it can be paid in installments over three years. 

Your assistance in any way to enrich the conversations and outcomes of the Spectrum community’s engagement will make a very big difference in so many ways.
