The $100,000 Matching Challenge has been met!
It's the year-end countdown to our annual goal of $1.5 million.
It's not too late to be part of the 100 + 1% Challenge
We've met the
 $100,000 Matching Challenge!

Thank you to all new and increased donors.

Thank you to the donor who offered the challenge grant.

Through the dark clouds of the pandemic, your generosity continues to shine the light of hope on those who continue to struggle with the wounds of poverty, abuse, neglect, illness, war and injustice.

This is Christmas in action!

Thank you for your faith, your generosity and your love in support of FaithWorks. By giving, we make real and manifest the meaning of the birth of the little Christ Child in a manger. By giving, we continue the work of salvation that Jesus began so long ago. By giving, we join the struggle to improve the future for the most vulnerable and hurt among us.
We still need to reach
our annual fundraising goal
of $1.5 million

It's the year-end countdown!

Only 10 days until Christmas! 

Christmas shopping is fast turning into
last minute shopping.
There are also only 17 days left in 2021. 

Let me remind you that it’s time to review your charitable pledges and intentions. If you wish to deduct your charitable donations on your 2021 income tax return, time is running out.

The FaithWorks 2021 campaign is approaching it’s annual goal of $1.5 million.  We hope to reach that goal to be able to offer the same funding as last year to our ministry partners. They work above and beyond the call of duty on the front line of the struggle with poverty, abuse, neglect, sickness, and human degradation in so many forms. As we can only imagine, it is a struggle that only became much more difficult with the pandemic and lockdowns.

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.

How wonderful it would be if we met Bishop Andrew’s 100+1% Challenge and saw something extraordinary happen in this 25th anniversary year!

Let’s all review our charitable intentions and pledges and help make something wonderful happen in 2021!

It's not too late to be part of
the 100 + 1 % Challenge

100% participation +
1% increase in donations

This "extraordinary" challenge has been given to us by Bishop Andrew to celebrate the 25th anniversary of FaithWorks. We are challenged to achieve 100% participation by Anglican parishes and individuals and a 1% increase in donations in this year's fundraising campaign.
This would produce an extraordinary result that would allow FaithWorks to offer extraordinary assistance to the most vulnerable among us during these extraordinarily difficult times.
That would be something to celebrate!
Join us and rise to the Challenge.
