G2G/G2G2 Giving Update: 1st Quarter 2017

9.6The 1st Quarter Giving Results are in for the G2G/G2G2 building campaign and we have much to be thankful for!  Through 3/31/17, the church has received nearly $6.4 million for both G2G/G2G2.  This is $2 million above the goal set for being able to break ground.  Individuals and families are actively giving to G2G/G2G2 and this is great news!

Just announced! We have received over $9.629 million in committed funds towards our break ground goal of $10.5 million in pledges. This includes G2G/G2G2 pledges, as well as funds from the sale of Front Door Shares and gifts made without a pledge or made over and above a pledge.

This brings our current funding gap to only $870.6K.  In the coming months, we are confident we will meet the break ground goal of having $10.5M in Committed Funds through additional pledges, sales of Front Door Shares, the initiation of Community Connect, as well as continued giving over and above pledges.

Encouraging Facts to Consider!

  • Over 500 families have pledged and/or have given to either one or both phases of the building campaign.
  • 241 families have made pledges that total $5,556,029 to the initial G2G phase.  $4,470,034 has been received so far.
  • 283 families have made pledges that total $3,944,574 to the G2G2 phase.  $1,854,147 has been received so far.
  • 63 Front Door Shares ($31,500) have been purchased through the 1st Quarter of 2017.

What do all these facts mean? That Columbians are committed to opening our new front door. Have you been waiting to see what happens with the building campaign before you make your pledge? Would you consider pledging at this time? Pledges and contributions are coming in every day but we still need you now more than ever! Every dollar counts as we get closer and closer to closing the gap and opening our new front door!
