An appeal for more money.

We've just finished drafting our second (and we hope final) broad-based appeal to the congregation for financial support. With only $5,000 to raise and another $5,000 challenge grant on the line, we are optimistic. Of course, we would really like to exceed our goal because we already know that our expenses will exceed our initial budget, so we'll have to scale back the final phase accordingly. We would also like to return some money to the Capital Reserve Fund for future work. As with our initial appeal back in September, every dollar raised goes into the building's preservation—we have hired no consultants and all of our fundraising-related supplies have been donated. Even within the South Church, there are worthy projects competing for donations, but we hope you'll see this one as a unique opportunity to pass our historic meetinghouse along to the next generation. Thanks again.
