As part of the Foundation’s 2016 mission, the Foundation has set a target to raise $5,000 to further support special missions of the Christian Church. The Foundation is asking that you prayerfully consider a donation of $50 as part of what the Foundation is calling the $50/50 years challenge. Just 100 commitments of $50 each will allow the foundation to achieve its goal.
Update: We feel blessed by the response to our 50/50 Campaign. So far, we have received a total of 85 pledges for a total pledge amount of $4,250, only $650 short of our goal!
Heritage Gift Donation: Jean Clemente
In December 2015, the Holy Cross Foundation received a heritage gift donation from the Trust of Jean Clemente. We were excited to hear that $20,000 was endowed to the foundation by Mrs. Clemente's trust. It is heritage gifts like these that will enable the Holy Cross Foundation Board to continue to bless various Christian ministries, as well as aid to defray the educational costs incurred by students at LCMS colleges and seminary. We are thankful to all who consider the Holy Cross Foundation as part of the legacy planning.
