More about the Capital Campaign
What is “Building a Bigger Table”?
To add a new question go to app settiOur “Footsteps to the Future” Capital Funds Campaign ended in April 2018. Through your generous gifts, we were able to watch our dreams become reality:We created more welcoming entrances, introduced our visitors with an open and spacious area, created a much nicer coat hallway, finished a much needed kitchen remodel, our Nursery is now more visible, installed a beautiful Welcome Desk to greet our members and visitors, as well as updates to the Dwelling, handicap bathroom, added an additional door to the Fellowship Hall, and finished our administrative offices so that the entire staff are together.So now what? While we were able to raise a significant amount of funds with our previous campaign, loans were taken out in order to finish everything.ngs and press "Manage Questions" button.
What is a Capital Campaign?
A Capital Campaign is an opportunity for members and friends of Peace United Church of Christ to support major initiatives of the church over an extended time period. Gifts received through a capital campaign are not used for yearly operational expenses; instead, capital campaign gifts are used most often for construction, renovation or other major physical projects that support fulfillment of the church’s vision and ministries.
Why does Peace UCC need a Capital Campaign?
Peace UCC is now one of the fastest growing congregations in the Minnesota Conference United Church of Christ. With the successful construction to make our Peace Church home more open and inviting through our previous “Footsteps to the Future” capital campaign, our “Building a Bigger Table” Budget Reduction Campaign will enable us to become debt free. As part of our rich heritage, Peace United Church of Christ has stepped out in faith as a congregation and invested in our future – knowing that on our own we cannot realize this future, but trusting that God walk with us every step of the way. We have a God-focused financial and ministry-centered goal that will stretch our abilities beyond what we can see and imagine by ourselves.
How long is the "Building a Bigger Table" Debt-Reduction Capital Campaign?
Building a Bigger Table Construction Debt-Reduction Capital Campaign is a three-year financial commitment from May 19, 2019 – May 19, 2022.
What is the goal of this Capital Campaign?
The Primary Goal of the current Capital Funds Campaign is debt reduction. The building expansion that has created the welcoming entry, expansive narthex and office suit required building loans. The focus of the present Capital Funds Campaign is to pay off the remaining $600,000 owed on those loans.
How can I support "Building a Bigger Table" for Peace United Church of Christ?
We are asking everyone to prayerfully consider how you can help us reduce the debt created through our construction. Accomplishing this goal isn’t up to one or two or a few – it’s up to ALL OF US who believe in God’s call to a bigger table through our ministries and outreach with the community. We are asking everyone to ‘think outside of the box’ on ways to work together to make this happen. We are challenging all the groups at Peace United Church of Christ to implement one fundraiser for each of the next 3 years for this effort.
Is my gift tax deductible?
Yes, gifts are tax deductible if you itemize your contributions when filing your tax return. If you have questions about the tax implications of your gift, please consult your tax advisor.
May I make a gift other than cash?
Besides cash, you may contribute gifts of stock, property, life insurance, and other securities. Again, consult your tax advisor regarding gifts of this type.
