Tēnā koutou to our Pathway family of supporters, partners, and volunteers,
Covid-19’s effect on Pathway’s social enterprise business Alloyfold has been significant. This has not been an easy time, but our staff have been remarkable in the way they’ve faced these issues with professionalism and a constructive approach.
Sadly, we’ve had to say goodbye to some of our incredible team as we right-sized the business, while others have taken pay cuts or reduced hours in order to help us get through.
The Navigate Initiative is back up and running after the lockdown, and we’ve had some fantastic news that the J R McKenzie Trust has granted the NI $100,000 of funding each year for the next three years. You can read more about our new partnership with the J R McKenzie Trust in our August 2020 newsletter.
September is the time we ask our wonderful supporters to renew their annual supporter shares in the Navigate Initiative, and this year your support is even more critical. We have always relied on both a self-funding social enterprise model, as well as the generosity of funding partners, donors, and volunteers to overcome the shortfall. So despite the good news about our grant from the J R McKenzie Trust, the devastating effect of COVID-19 on our social enterprise business Alloyfold has been significant for the financial situation of the Pathway Trust. We are calling on our loyal supporter base to help us bridge this gap. Please help us to create possibilities for some of our community’s most marginalised and vulnerable by renewing your supporter shares or making a one off donation.
Thank you for your ongoing support. You are part of our team, and we couldn’t make a difference without you.
