Congregational Challenge a Success
As part of our 35th Anniversary celebration, our Board of Directors offered to match dollar for dollar any gifts coming through a congregation or in support of a congregational campaign between December 1, 2012 and December 31, 2013. Our goal was to raise $1,000,000 which would be a 42% increase in congregational support. With more than 25 congregations participating, the goal was met and exceeded! Emmanuel Lutheran Church was our top funder with more than $250,000 donated. Participating at the $50,000 or greater lever were Trinity-by-the-Cove Episcopal Church, Wesley United Methodist Church, United Church of Marco Island, Vanderbilt Presbyterian and St. William Catholic Church. To every congregation, donor and volunteer who made this challenge a success; we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You ARE faith in action.
