Extended Vision 2020 Campaign
We are imagining our spiritual home’s tomorrow in more creative and exciting ways. Vision 2020 raised over $4 million in gifts and in the sale of Baxter House. However, since we reached and stretched on our improvements during the Vision 2020 campaign, we still now service a debt of approximately one million, which costs us $70,000 a year. We have some fundamental maintenance and structural issues that need to be addressed soon in order to keep us safe and comfortable in our communal space.
Erasing or significantly reducing the 2020 debt and making other capital improvements are the primary drivers of this campaign along with our desire to make a significant gift to our broader community. Because we are sustained by the power of community and strong pastoral support, the Extended Vision 2020 presents an opportunity to support and ensure that St. Mark’s will continue to be a force that continues to sustain us, and allows us to contribute to the broader community. We invite 100% participation; the glass is half-full.
Pledges are a three-year commitment and will be accepted until May 31, 2018, with payment due in full by March 31, 2021. Use this Extended Vision 2020 online pledge form. Additional paper pledge forms are available in the Church Office and in the track racks in the nave at each entrance.
