HSF Ambassador Volunteers all over the country are excited about the new HSF fiscal year incentive because two ambassadors will attend the HSLDA National Conference in September as guests of HSF. This incentive is open to all present and newly applying ambassadors, so the field is wide open!
The two Ambassadors who raise the most money for their state fund by August 1st will receive a special invitation to the HSLDA National Conference in Orlando, Florida, at the end of September, along with a voucher worth $1,000 to cover conference registration, conference meals, four nights at the hotel, and travel expenses up to $350.
Last fiscal year, Ambassadors raised over $14,000, which HSF matched to double the amount of money available for their state funds to help local homeschool families in need. At least 10 financially distressed families, with a total of more than 30 children, were directly served by Ambassadors last year.
This year, HSF will again be matching the first $20,000 contributed to any State Ambassador Fund with a maximum of $2,000 per state.
Another way that Ambassadors have been stepping up to help this past year is in going to conferences to tell other homeschoolers about HSF and the services we provide.
Our Massachusetts State Ambassador wrote us recently about her experience at one of those conferences:
It truly was a wonderful event! We had many people stop by the table with questions about how they can become involved in HSF. We were deeply touched by one widow's testimony of how overjoyed she was by HSF's support. While sharing her story of the help and encouragement that she had received from HSF, her eyes became filled with tears of joy, and she said, "I'll be back to tell you more when I can stop crying."
She did come back while I was next door at a homeschool support group luncheon where my husband spoke to 67 leaders about HSF. One of our daughters was watching the booth at that time and spoke with the widow when she returned and gave her more information on how to contact us.
We also received several contributions during the conference which we will forward to you for inclusion in our Massachusetts Ambassador Fund. Thank you for helping us with this wonderful ministry! We are deeply blessed to be a part of HSF.
