A Call for Action – The Renewal of St. George Church NYC
Capital Campaign extended - one goal accomplished; another goal created
We are pleased to inform you that the Capital Campaign for St. George has reached its goal of raising $130,000! This money, held in a separate Capital Campaign account, will be used to renew the façade of the church and for various improvements to the interior.
We have formed a construction committee which will review contractor bids and prepare their recommendation to the Parish Council in June. There are many details to be addressed and we are always concerned about surprises that our 1886 building may hold; but we are happy to share with you that we have achieved this milestone.
We considered the original $130,000 goal a ‘stretch goal’ and, because of this, we did not include the replacement of the aging main façade window. Because of the success of the last two months, we are extending our Capital Campaign to raise an additional $40,000 – primarily for the replacement of the main window with a first-rate stained glass depiction of St. George (initial sketch below).
We thank all of you who have contributed to the Capital Campaign. The generosity that you have shown has given us the confidence to proceed forward with this final piece of the façade renewal.

We are fortunate to have an architect in our community who is donating her services and providing a vision for this endeavor (rendering above).
In addition, others have donated their services. While many pieces are coming together, we need to complete this final financial drive so we can begin construction this summer.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. The time has come to take care of the church which has taken care of us. We ask for your support and look forward to hearing from you.
We look forward to providing you an update in the weeks to come.

Giving to His Church is a way to thank God for His grace and generosity in our lives. The question is not, "How much do I give to stay in the club?' or "What are the dues?" but rather "How can I thank God for my many blessings?" Please remember that a gift to the church is most meaningful when accompanied by your presence, by your willingness to serve, by your prayers and by your commitment. Giving is not a substitute for commitment -- it is an expression of your commitment.
