The Numbers Are in From the 2018 Gala!

It’s week after our 4th Annual Keys to Freedom Gala, and we have some news for you!  Since last Thursday, we have continued to receive encouragement and donations from supporters, BUT we do have an exciting number for you….

Because of the generous  donations we have received for the Gala, along with pledges that have been committed for the next year…

…the 4th Annual Keys to Freedom Gala has raised over $465,000!

That’s incredible, but there’s even more to that number!!  At the Gala, we made a special announcement that a partner in India will be matching donations up to $1,000,000, and now he has extended this offer through the end of 2018!  He will send every match directly to the children, so while it won’t be included in our official numbers, it still has the same impact as if it were.

So, between now and the end of 2018, every gift you give to the children will be matched until we reach $1,000,000!

And last, but certainly not least, we had some incredible photographers from Let People See as well as Bulletproof Photography with us at the Gala last week, and we are dying to show you the images they captured.

    What fantastic news! And I pray for God’s blessings on everyone who gave, and especially that donor who is matching each gift. What an encouragement to know there are so many generous givers out there to help rescue and care for these children.

    This ministry and mission is legit. I traveled to India in person to see it for myself. It’s the real deal, and it’s such a privilege to be a part of what God is doing through Set Free Alliance, Praveen, and all of the pastors there in India.

    This gala was such an awesome evening for my wife and me. It was an inspiring atmosphere of like-minded folks all coming together to make a difference in the lives of so many children. I want to thank the whole team at Set Free Alliance for such an incredible event in which we were all blessed to be a part.
