We were so overwhelmed with the wonderful response to the IPM Epiphany Boxes, we can’t wait to see how the food pantry shelves will be filled with soup/canned ready-to-eat meals with this annual event.

2021 Annual Giving Update

We have a very generous pledge-match challenge:
All new/increased gifts will be matched up to $15,000!

As a reminder, annual pledges allow us to accurately budget our operations, plan ministry priorities and resources gracefully. 

  • We are 88% to our 2021 Goal.
  • To date, just under 3/4 of those who pledged in 2020 have pledged in 2021.
  • Currently, we are $85,000 short of our 2021 Annual Giving Goal.

For those for who have already sent in your 2021 pledge, thank you. If you have any questions about the pledging process or how our funds are allocated, please contact Becky Fugate, Staff Accountant
