As of mid-August 2016, just over 300 families – the majority of them regular supporters – have committed more than $900,000 toward our Capital Campaign to build a new sanctuary and other facilities. They are truly a blessing to all of us!
We have an estimated 1,600 registered families. While it’s difficult to estimate how many unregistered families regularly come to STHY, for argument’s sake, let’s add 300 more families: total 1,900.
So, five months into our Capital Campaign, there are still an estimated 1,600 families who have yet to pledge. If each of these families was was able to commit to $1,000 a year for three years, we could add $4.8 million to the $900,000 already raised.
But even if these families were only able to commit $30 a month – just a dollar a day – for three years, they would raise about $1.7 million to add to the $900,000 already committed – about $2.6 million.
How much should you commit? We have suggested 3 percent of your annual income. Some families will be able to afford more, of course. Some less.
Not all checkbooks are made equal. Our hearts, however, are all pretty much the same size -- which is why we ask you to give from your own ability. What’s the right amount for you and your family? Ask God for his guidance.
You can give by check, cash, stocks, bonds -- even by legacy gift, if you like. You can also give by Faith Direct, PayPal (below) or by credit or debit card via PayPal. (You don't need a PayPal account to give by card.)
