VISION

In This With You is a nonpolitical nonprofit that builds helpful online resources, conversation, and community for those experiencing crisis pregnancies, those who have chosen abortion in their past, and those who just want to offer practical assistance, grace, and love to their friends in need.

YOUR EFFORT

We believe you are called and are able to significantly help your friends in need in these situations. In October of 2016, In This With You will then guide you in three following areas so that you can make a difference in the lives of those who really need you.

HELPING YOU START A DIFFERENT CONVERSATION

The conversation surrounding abortion is a war zone of opinions and stances, especially on social media. Thus, we want to guide you in starting a different kind of conversation that is gracious, humble, vulnerable, and action-oriented for the sake of those you know that actually need help in this area rather than just another opinion.

EQUIPPING YOU WITH GREAT ONLINE RESOURCES

Have you ever felt lost on knowing how to practically help a friend in need? Seeing this as a common struggle, In This With You is building online resources to guide you in properly helping your friends who will go through a crisis pregnancy or are struggling with their past choice of abortion.

GUIDING YOU TO CULTIVATE FRIENDSHIPS OF SUPPORT

We have a plan to help guide you in cultivating friendships where people know they can reach out to you if they find themselves in need in this area. This takes vulnerability and courage to overcome shame on their end and a pledge for you to be practically helpful and nonjudgmental on your end. We will share more on this as we launch in October 2016!

BACKSTORY

In This With You was birthed as a result of a spiritual calling experienced by our founder in June of 2013. This “calling” came with revelation of God’s desire to for us to practically love and help those who have had an abortion in their past. This “call” came with the question “Will you help them?” Despite not knowing how to help and feeling deeply unqualified, a “yes” was given to Him. (Watch the video below to find out more of our founder’s calling experience) Since then, work has been done in researching, thinking, and praying through what helping post-abortive individuals and also those in crisis pregnancies practically looks like. After a plan was set in place, paperwork was submitted to the IRS in February of 2015 for In This With You to be a registered 501c3 nonprofit.

CORE CONCLUSIONS

Through the last 2 years of researching what the effort could be, a few core “30,000 foot” conclusions rose to the surface about how In This With You’s movement needed to be strategically different from other efforts for the greatest possible impact.

itwy-nonpolit

NONPOLITICAL

While many organizations seek political avenues to combat abortion, we believe seeking this method could in fact be counterproductive in the long run. With a growing distrust of American politics, we believe Millennials are looking to get involved in this issue in a way that is intentionally mercy-centered and nonpolitical.

itwy-debate

PRACTICAL MERCY OVER DEBATE

Abortion is a hot topic of debate within society and many organizations spend much of their time, money, and effort fighting these culture wars while never really getting around to helping real people in real crises. Even though we have strong beliefs about abortion, we desire to channel our efforts to help people rather than to win a moral debate.

itwy-jesus

REFLECTING JESUS

Though many Christians are passionate about the subject of abortion, we often struggle to reflect Jesus in our methods, tone, and messaging. Thus, In This With You desires to extend Jesus’ forgiveness to those who are broken because of a past abortion, friendship and respect to those who disagree with us, practical help to those in need in the midst of a crisis pregnancy, and nonjudgmental truth to culture.

itwy-technology

BETTER USE OF TECHNOLOGY

Many organizations in this effort struggle to fully utilize technology, media, and communication trends to gear their resources and wisdom to the emerging generations. People rarely ask for help anymore. They Google for it. Thus, if people in need can’t Google and find helpful online resources quickly, they will give up and won’t likely look for help anywhere else.

STRATEGY

In response to the conclusions stated above, In This With You is focusing its strategic efforts in the following ways:

viral

CATALYZE & LEAD A VIRAL CONVERSATION

Through the use of social media, blogging, and creative videos, we believe the new narrative we are articulating has the necessary ingredients to go “viral” because of the controversial nature of the abortion conversation.

movement

CHAMPION A MOVEMENT OF LIKE-HEARTED PEOPLE

We believe that the best way to help those experiencing crisis pregnancies or regret from a past abortion is to involve and equip millions of everyday people to assist their friends, family, and community members.

reachingpostabortion

INTENTIONALLY REACH POST-ABORTIVE PEOPLE

Often people who have had an abortion in their past live in secrecy. Countering the shame culture that can exist in Christian communities, we want to intentionally reach these people showing them hope and healing through Jesus.

BUILD INTHISWITHYOU.COM

There is a great need in this effort for a website to act as an online “hub” for those seeking help. Our website seeks to fill this void by offering the following:

BUDGET COMMITMENTS & BREAKDOWN

Core Commitments

As a new nonprofit, In This With You has the following core commitments as it pertains stewarding donations and determining our future budget.

TRANSPARENCY
Often, there is a degree of suspicion to how nonprofits allocate their donations. Thus, we desire to show you an accurate breakdown of how your donation will be spent.

EXCELLENCE
We believe God is calling In This With You to create content at a very high level. This means excellence in video work, visual design, and internet technology to best reach our target audience. Thus, we see the need to budget appropriate amounts towards the equipment and expertise required for such work.

GENEROSITY
Many might associate nonprofits with volunteer work. While that might function well with some organizations, the work that In This With You seeks to do will require the dedication of professional full-time staff. Thus, we desire to generously pay our staff and partners at the market value for their work.

The Numbers

Below details the 12 ­month budget. If more than 70k is raised, the extra funds will go to increasing the quality of the website and video production. If less than 70k is raised, funds will be deducted from the salary.
