At Maine’s Episcopal Diocese’s Diocesan Convention in October, Bishop Lane asked congregations to consider a Thanksgiving ingathering for Episcopal Relief & Development, considering the tremendous need of people across the world.
What a timely request! Starting now through the end of December, ER&D supporters have the opportunity to double donations by participating in a holiday match.
A group of extremely generous donors will match all donations dollar-for-dollar up to $760,000 until December 31
. Donations made to any ER&D fund before year-end are eligible for matching, including contributions online
, over the phone, by mail or through Gifts for Life
, the organization’s alternative giving catalog. For new and existing monthly donors, any scheduled contributions will also be matched.
You can also make a check payable to St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church, note ERD Matching gift in memo line and mail to: St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church, 21 Holyoke Street, Brewer, Maine 04412.
