Double your impact by becoming a Share Year-Round donor or increasing your monthly donations during Lent! A fund endowed by some generous individuals and religious communities will match new monthly pledges (and increases to existing monthly donations) dollar for dollar! * E.g., if you pledge $10 a month, Development and Peace will receive a total of $240 over the year. *Valid until the matching fund of $160,000 runs out.
