100 + 1 % Challenge - "Something extraordinary"

100 + 1 % Challenge

The Opportunity
“This year’s campaign marks the 25th anniversary for FaithWorks; a milestone. Building on the success of last year’s effort, let us reach for something extraordinary: 100 + 1%. That is 100% participation and a 1% increase in giving from all parishes.”

“I believe this approach is equitable, fair, and consistent with biblical teaching to give proportionately of one’s own gifts.”

“I would like to challenge all parishes to rise to the occasion and increase giving to FaithWorks this year by an amount equal to 1% of their offertory.”

“Imagine the possibilities if every Anglican from every parish in this Diocese gave something to FaithWorks in this anniversary year, indeed, gave more to FaithWorks this year than they ever have before, even 1% more. Talk about making a difference. It’s exciting to consider. I hope you prayerfully will too.” 
The Right Reverend Andrew Asbil, Bishop of Toronto

Bishop Andrew offered this challenge to us in his message celebrating the 25th anniversary of FaithWorks this year. He called it “something extraordinary”. Truly, imagine how many more lives can be renewed, futures ensured and families strengthened, if every one of us, every parish, every person, offered a little more, “even 1% more” to FaithWorks.

We all know the struggles, pain and losses the pandemic has brought. We know what has been accomplished by FaithWorks in 2020. Now it is again our opportunity to help write the next chapter in the story of FaithWorks. It is our opportunity to reach out and do more, become more and help others more. It is our opportunity to make 2021 the best beginning to the next 25 years in the story of FaithWorks.
