Last fall, your churchwide board approved an exciting new initiative—The All Anew Campaign for Katie’s Fund—with the goal of tripling our endowed Katie’s Fund by the 2020 Triennial Convention and Gathering. That means tripling the life-changing ministry that Katie’s Fund can make possible!
The total goal of The All Anew Campaign for Katie’s Fund is to grow the fund from its current total of about $1.5 million to $4.5 million by July 2020. Your elected board members and other dedicated women from throughout the church are forming a leadership circle—Katie’s Sisters—to get The All Anew Campaign off to a rousing start, with a goal of raising $1 million in gifts and commitments.
Our friends at the InFaith Foundation are offering their gift-planning expertise to women who’d like to learn more about how they can put their assets to work with a commitment to The All Anew Campaign for Katie’s Fund.
As an endowed fund, the money held in Katie’s Fund is invested carefully to generate income. That annual income—which is generally about 4 percent of the amount invested—may be used by the churchwide women’s organization for leadership development, living theology and global connections. Your generous support of Katie’s Fund, through regular gifts and through The All Anew Campaign for Katie’s Fund, really makes a difference in women’s lives. Thank you and watch for more information about The All Anew Campaign for Katie’s Fund as it becomes available!
