As we enter into the Christmas Season, I ask you to help further the mission of the Central Washington Catholic Foundation by responding to our End of Year Appeal with a generous “Gift of Faith”.
The Catholic Foundation provides support through the Celebration of Faith event and the thirty-eight endowed funds to ensure that the parishes, schools, and ministries throughout Central Washington are in a position to support the faithful and the underserved. I can’t think of a more important cause than that!
This is wonderful and exciting work, but I am writing to you today because we need your help. With the end of 2019 approaching, the Foundation is expecting
an operations shortfall of nearly $13,000.
Your end of year gift during this Season of Hope will lead our children and our faith communities to put on the Armor of God, fortifying them to stand against the many challenges they will face today and in the years to come.
Our organization wouldn’t be around if it weren’t for the generosity of people like you. I’m honored by your support, and feel so fortunate that I can write you about this current situation.
It is up to us to support our ministries. There isn’t someone else out there to take this job! Your end-of-year gift will ensure that funding for the operations budget is secure.
Your gift is needed. And your gift makes a difference.
To meet our goal and end the year on target, we need to raise $13,000 by December 31.
I know we can do this. I know because of friends like you. People who value the Catholic faith - who understand that we must increase access to the message of Christ’s love and forgiveness.
Your donation before December 31 st means we can keep going, full speed ahead. No worries about budget, just share faith with as many people as we can.
Gifts of stock or a Qualified Charitable Distribution from your IRA can increase your capacity to give. Contact the office at (509) 972-3732 or visit our website to learn more.
Our ministries are sharing the hope that comes only from Jesus Christ and His Church. A hope that has the power to lift up our families and fill them with the love, compassion, and courage they need to walk with the Lord through life’s many challenges.
In supporting the Catholic Foundation, you are creating a partnership with these tremendous messengers to ensure that our Church is ready to welcome and serve.
What gift does God want you to make today?
May your joy be full this Christmas,
-Kathleen Wilmes, Executive Director
