WE NEED YOUR HELP!


The annual reports have been submitted by our FaithWorks' Ministry Partners.



The need for FaithWorks’ ministry partners’ services has

INCREASED 35%

this past year over the previous year.


The requests for funding for 2023 are

20% ABOVE

the funds provided in 2022.


But, we are on track

to just barely raise the same funding as last year!


LET’S MAKE THIS

GIVING TUESDAY

A TRUE DAY OF GIVING!

$100,000

Matching Challenge Grant for 2022

Doing a little more

can make twice the difference.

- don't miss out on this opportunity to help -

We are at 70%

We're getting there

but have a ways to go!


A generous donor has offered a $100,000 matching challenge grant for all new and increased donations. This means for every dollar raised over last year’s amount, by an individual or parish, FaithWorks receives an extra dollar. We encourage you to make a special effort this year.

It's the year-end countdown!

 

25 days until Christmas!



The Season of Advent

is upon us! 

There are also only 32 days left in 2022. 

 

Let me remind you that it is time to review your charitable pledges and intentions for 2022.

 

This continues to be a difficult year economically. We are still called "to be generous and trusting" as Archbishop Welby reminds us. Join the FaithWorks' 2022 campaign as we continue to work towards our annual goal of $1.5 million. 


We hope to reach our goal to be able to offer the same funding as last year to our ministry partners who offer support and comfort to the most vulnerable among us. We would like to exceed that goal to offer more assistance to our existing ministry partners and help the new applicants seeking our support for the first time.

 

Let’s all review our charitable intentions and pledges and be as generous as we can in 2022!
