Campaign Update -- December 2017

The POP Campaign Team is encouraged by the wonderful response from our congregation -- we are nearly 90% of the way to our goal of $569,000.

Please don't think it's too late to make your pledge, we need everybody's help to take us across the finish line!

More exciting news coming in November:  The Campbell Room is getting a makeover!  The old carpeting is being removed and replaced with new flooring. At the Manse, new doors and windows will begin to be installed around Thanksgiving time.

Even as we begin work on our Preservation of Property projects, there is still time for you to make a donation or fill out a pledge card.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why initiate a Preservation of Property Campaign now?
We have deferred the maintenance of our buildings for a number of years, concentrating on immediate repairs and individual projects. Now is the time to address the larger projects before they become more costly. Our annual operating budget doesn’t cover major projects. Income from our Endowment Fund will help us begin to fund these projects but would not cover all costs.

For more information, see the full report created by Stephen Tilly, Architect.

How much money do you hope to raise?
Our goal is to raise $500,000 over four years from members, friends, and people who share our space. This will fund our five year capital improvement program.
Is it too late to donate?
No, POP projects are planned to occur over the next 4 years. We are also looking to create a contingency fund for the fifth year and beyond. Your donation is very welcome and we are grateful for your commitment.
Can I give assets other than cash?
Yes. We can help you transfer appreciated stock or other assets.
Do you have a timeline of projects included in this campaign?
Yes, we have a matrix of projects for each of the buildings. If you are interested, please see Christine Alvis or Steve Berg.
Can I help with these projects?
The best way to help us is through your donations. Most of the projects require professional contractors to complete. Please talk with us if you have a specific interest or talent to volunteer!
What if I have more questions?
We welcome your questions and feedback. Please see Christine Alvis or Steve Berg for more information.
