Dear Deputies and Alternate Deputies:
We’re less than four weeks away from the end of the House of Deputies campaign to raise $75,000 for Episcopal Relief & Development’s 75th anniversary, and we have some terrific news.
A generous group of donors from The Cathedral of St. Philip Atlanta generously pledged $25,000 in matching funds for the campaign. That means that when you donate before June 30, the St. Philip pledge will double the value of your contribution and do more to help heal a hurting world.
We’ve already raised $55,757, nearly 75% of our goal. Between now and when we gather in Salt Lake City, deputies will host a concert in Minnesota, run a 200-mile relay race in Utah, and wrap up other creative fundraising initiatives. If you haven’t yet had a chance to contribute to the effort, now is your chance. A donation of any size will help us succeed in meeting our goal!
Donate online to the House of Deputies Episcopal Relief & Development campaign by June 30 and your donation will be matched by the generous people of St. Philip. If you prefer to send a check, make it payable to Episcopal Relief & Development and remember to write: “75thAnniversary – HOD” in the check’s memo line. Send your check to: Episcopal Relief & Development, P.O. Box 7058, Merrifield, VA 22116-7058.
Thank you for your support of Episcopal Relief & Development’s work to heal a hurting world. We look forward to seeing you in Salt Lake City.
