A heartfelt thank you to all of those who have already committed to helping Annunciation House raise the necessary funds to renovate it’s 100 year old building.
Annunciation House is in need of a major renovation in order to be a safe and comfortable sanctuary that honors the dignity of its guests. The work needed includes bringing the entire structure into compliance with current safety, building, and accessibility codes, as well as many other tasks.
Just 7 days remain in our crowdfunding campaign. So far, we have raised over $15,000 from individuals.
We appeal to all friends of immigrants and refugees to help us keep the door mercifully and justly open to our guests. If you have not been able make a donation, please consider making one.
Annunciation House has always relied on the spontaneous generosity of those who feel called to accompany its work. In order to raise the money needed for this major rehabilitation, Annunciation House is undertaking its first-ever fundraising campaign.
We will raise over $1 million over the period of three years from various sources, including grants and, to a great extent, individuals. We are beginning with a crowdfunding goal of $50,000, which we intend to build upon with support from grants and foundations.
Below is a link to the online fundraising page with more information about what is needed. Please take a moment to look at it and consider how you or others you know can partner with us in this restoration of our physical home and reinvigoration of our mission.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
