As another annual conference approaches, the Development Committee of The Church Network reminds you we are continuously accepting contributions to the endowment program as well as to our general fund. Whether from an individual, a chapter, or a business partner, support may mean someone can attend conference where he may pick up a nugget of knowledge or two, pursue certification to demonstrate excellence in administration, or possibly find “hope in transition” while seeking employment in another administrative capacity.
We hope you have made plans to be in Washington, D.C., in just a few days. Members of the committee will be available during the conference to accept your donations: you can donate by Square reader or you may opt to use PushPay. If you’re not planning to be at conference this summer, we will still be soliciting your support through the various options available. You can donate here through the TCN website, use PushPay, or if you prefer, send a contribution by snail mail. Any amount, large or small, will be gratefully appreciated.
Life is about relationships. Don’t go it alone! Be involved and leave a legacy to support administrators who may become lifelong friends or others you may never know. Thank you for your consideration and have a safe and enjoyable summer.
We want to remind you what the Endowment Fund is all about. Click here to learn more. The Endowment Fund makes possible some pretty great things for our members such as:
Provide scholarships to those who need financial assistance in attending the annual conference.
Provide scholarships to those who need financial assistance in attending the certification seminars.
Provide seed money to start new chapters and strengthen those in need.
Provide funding for our Key Leader Training program.
And provide funding to support the work of our Professional Training and Standards Committee.
We’re certain you see the importance of The Endowment Fund. Hopefully you also understand the need to be able to provide these benefits to our members both now and long into the future as the Fund was intended. That is why we have been engaging in this special campaign, “$60 in 16,” with the goal of each member giving at least $60. Donations to the "$60 in 16" campaign will be split with 50% being allocated directly to scholarships and 50% going to the fund’s corpus. This will provide much-needed additional funding for scholarships.
