Responding to the CRWRC Funding Gap

  9 views

Given the recent news that CRWRC will experience a $1.1 million gap in funding this year due to loss of funding from CIDA, I was wondering if deacons/congregations are doing anything to address this particular need, beyond any normally scheduled offerings for CRWRC — scheduling additional offerings, making congregants aware of CRWRC's Harvest Hope campaign, etc. — or have any other ideas about supporting their excellent work during the challenging time.

Let's see if we can get someone from CRWRC to respond to this, ok?

I have heard from many congregations that are scheduling additional offerings. We definitely appreciate it - and also prayers that our next grant will be funded.

Wendy, is there a news article or more info online about this that you could link to so I can share it with the deacons at my church?

Great news! We did get *some* interim CIDA funds. http://www.crcna.org/news.cfm?detailid=3556&newsid=2565
