Capital Fundraising Campaign

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, we hope to raise $30,000 by March of 2014. As of November 2013, we've raised about half of our original goal. 

The exterior of our historic building badly needs repainting which we hope to accomplish in 2014.  We also expect to have to replace the roof in the next 2-3 years. Both of these projects are expensive but necessary.

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!  Click HERE for more information on our Capital needs and Fundraising Campaign.
