While last year proved challenging to many individuals and organizations, thanks to the incredible generosity and faithfulness of Knollwood's members, along with lower operating expenses for the year, KBC found itself with a 2020 budget excess of nearly $90,000. In late January, the Mission Affiliations and Allocation Committee (MAAC) was asked to allocate these funds to the benefit of our community. For the following 90 days, our committee prayerfully and thoughtfully allocated funds to local organizations focused on education, food insecurity, homelessness, family support, and community support. In line with prior recommendations from our Racial Equity Taskforce, our committee also intentionally sought to support minority-led organizations doing work with communities disproportionately impacted by racial inequity, insufficient resources and pressing needs.The details below show how the funds were disbursed in service to our community.
In the coming months, we encourage you to learn more about the phenomenal work these organizations are doing. We also welcome your feedback and questions. We celebrate the abundance God has given us and trust that through our shared work God's Kingdom will flourish, even in the face of unprecedented challenges.
