The Generous Giving Committee oversees all fundraising at First Parish and is also coordinating programming and conversations about Generosity in all its forms.
On Sunday, March 1st we will launch the annual Stewardship Campaign. FPL is a self-sustaining church, and Stewardship is essential for to cover our operating costs (staff, facilities, programming). Additional funding comes from rental income and Endowment Fund draws.
Next week, you will receive the Stewardship Campaign materials in your mailbox (or inbox). Our generosity pays for the staff and space and programming that make our spiritual community possible. The fundraising goal for this year’s campaign is $440,000 – supporting continued excellent staffing programming while reducing our reliance on Endowment Fund draws.
We would like to receive your pledge by May 10, 2020. Actual payment of your pledge can be made any time before June 30, 2021 (that’s the following June).
Each week, this column will offer updates on the Stewardship Campaign, stories of generosity and spiritual journeys from our friends and neighbors, and insights and information about the role of Generosity – in all its forms — in the life of our congregation.
