Dear Friend — George Soros calls the International Organization for the Family (IOF) “strategic and proactive.” His Open Society Foundation warns the so-called progressive left that IOF is no longer defensive in nature, reacting to the left’s agenda. Rather, they see that we are moving the pro-family movement forward, enacting policies and building relationships to equip and empower a global force for the family.
This past May, IOF gathered thousands of pro-family leaders in Hungary, Soros’s homeland, at the World Congress of Families XI Budapest Family Summit. We
celebrated Hungary’s remaking of itself under President Viktor Orban into “the family friendly nation.” And we brought in some the world’s most accomplished experts – social scientists, academics, communications specialists, researchers, etc. – to equip, educate and engage attendees who had come from virtually every continent. In turn, these thousands of activists will return home to pursue pro-family work and ministries.
The World Congress in Budapest was an amazing success, and George Soros is quite concerned about it. His “Open Democracy 50 50” prepared a detailed report of the Congress, which they published to their supporters. In it, they write that Congress organizers are among the major driving forces in the “export of homophobia and sexism.” They warn that IOF is facilitating a “transnational anti-rights alliance” that is becoming “increasingly organized and connected.” And they say that groups organized by IOF have had “success in pushing through regressive language in international human rights documents.”
Again, George Soros is right except what he sees as ‘regressive’ and ‘anti-rights’ is in reality pro-child, pro-family and pro-society. The International Organization for the Family has helped connect groups on virtually every continent and weave them into an impressive pro-family movement, and we’ve had tremendous success in fighting for the natural family and derailing the left’s agenda.
Soros is also concerned that IOF will raise the $100,000 in matching funds that expires on Labor Day. Let’s make sure his concerns are validated as we rally the pro-family community to help us reach our $100,000 goal!
We have barely five days left in this critical matching campaign. Thanks to a generous supporter, every donation received by IOF through Labor Day will be matched dollar for dollar, and monthly pledges will be matched for an entire year! Your $25 pledge will result in IOF receiving $300 thanks to the matching gift offer.
PS — Making a donation is easy and will only take a couple of minutes. If you are not in a position to make a monthly pledge, your one-time gift will also be matched through Labor Day. Please act today. Thank you!
The International Organization for the Family (IOF) depends on voluntary contributions from individuals, businesses and organizations to support its work. IOF receives no government funding of any kind. IOF is an international network of pro-family organizations, scholars, leaders and inter-faith people of goodwill from more than 80 countries that seek to protect and promote the natural family as the fundamental social unit and the ‘seedbed’ of civil society (as found in the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights).
