Igniting the fire to stand up for human rights and become more involved in community.
Working with the Guidelines for Engaged Buddhism as presented by Thich Nhat Hanh for his Order of Interbeing, we shall train ourselves to look at everything with openness — being committed to learning and practicing being open to others’ experiences and insights in order to benefit from the shared collective wisdom emerging in our time. We also look to the Women's March Global Mission for Equality -- a worldwide vision focused upon women’s rights, equality, diversity, and inclusion, with priorities on Health, Economic Security, Representation, and Safety for all.

In March 2012 the Interfaith Community Sanctuary initiated a Capital Fundraising Campaign to cover current and anticipated major expenses to maintain our historic building…our unique sacred space. To cover current and anticipated expenditures plus provide a reasonable reserve fund for unexpected emergencies.
In 2014 we were blessed with a grant that allowed us to replace the roof but the exterior of our historic building still needs repainting. Our almost 100 year old water line and the gutters and downspouts are also in need of replacement. In addition, we would like to provide a means of access for the disabled. All of these projects are expensive but necessary to maintain the integrity of our facility.
We are asking each and every friend and member of ICS to think hard about what this community means to you and to contribute something extra to support the Capital Fundraising Campaign. All donations to ICS are completely tax deductible. Any donation to the Capital Fundraising Campaign should be marked “Capital Fundraising Campaign” or ICS/CFC. Donations can be made by Credit Card or PayPal by clicking on the "Donate" button to the right or by mailing a check directly to the church at the address below. Thank you for your continued support!
