Hello [donor first name]
Thank you for your continued support for [Project]! 2023 will be filled with many new and exciting changes to our global community and I look forward to sharing them with you.
As Atlas Corps moves forward into the new year, I’d like to take a moment to thank you for helping us expand our global network. I am happy to report that since our last update in October, we have been able to build new partnerships and continue our engagement with global leaders.
Last month, Atlas Corps welcomed Class 48, a group of 5 emerging professionals from Cuba, Egypt, Nigeria, and Zimbabwe. They recently began service at their Host Organizations, which includes my former colleagues at Save the Children. I encourage you to meet our new Fellows here.
- Class 48 continues our recent partnership with Generation, a global nonprofit that prepares, places, and supports people into life-changing careers that would otherwise be inaccessible.
- You can learn more about Generation here and our partnership here.
On behalf of our Fellows and Alumni, thank you for your ongoing support! Thanks to you, Fellows like Michelle (Class 44, Mexico) can continue to inspire positive change at their Host Organizations. While at One to World, Michelle is involved in their flagship program, Global Classroom, which delivers a series of intercultural programs to under-resourced youth. Michelle shares, “it was certainly surprising to later receive letters from some children telling me how I taught them things about their own country that they did not about before – little did I knew there were some Mexican children in the classroom – or others even explaining how they understood their privilege of not having to leave their country alone.”
Lastly, I have one more very important update to share with you. Please join our Team in wishing our Chief Strategy Officer and Atlas Corps Alum Abby a farewell. After 12.5 years on our Team, Abby has been a valuable team member and an inspiration to our entire Community. As an Alum she will continue to bring her positive energy to our Community. Here is a special thank you from Abby:
Atlas Corps is a special part of all of our journeys. Atlas Corps is about connecting with dynamic individuals who share a passion for possibility. Thank you, Atlas Corps Community (staff, donors, volunteers, and more) for providing me the opportunity to be a Fellow and believing in my ability to grow and lead this organization. The future is bright and I am excited to be part of it!
Thank you once again for all you have done for the Atlas Corps Community. We are grateful for your friendship and what you do for Atlas Corps and I am excited for what this year has in store for us!
