St. George Parish Hall Expansion
Building Fund Pledge
* Regular Loan Repayment: To fund and repay the Parish Hall expansion building
loan, each member of St. George’s Orthodox Church must step up to the plate and
help out. For bare-bones building construction, as a parish we take on a
$120,000.00 loan, which will be repaid, interest free, to the Diocese over a period of time.
So, in addition to your regular, vitally important tithe/support
for the parish, for this vital building project to work, each person must
responsibly cover a minimum ‘fair share’ of the expense.
If we all pitch in, it
can be simple and virtually pain free. Costs break down as follows: Donating an
$4.00 per week – the cost of one fast food meal – covers your share of
the loan payment.
Period. This adds up to approximately $16.00 a month or about
$200.00 extra each year. To support something which so greatly benefits us right
now and critically impacts the future life and growth of our church, surely we
can wholeheartedly commit to this small extra expense. Over the life of
the loan, this totals about $3,000.00 per person.
* Bronze Level Patron: In addition to and beyond loan repayment obligations,
larger donations are critical to the success of this project. The loan covers only
the basic expense of the church hall expansion and does not include outfitting
our new commercial kitchen or our church school rooms, storage shelves, choir
room, office furnishings, equipment or anything beyond the essential structure
and infrastructure, such as plumbing, electrical and bathrooms. To flesh out
the new hall and enable it to actually flourish and fully function, we need
additional financial support! Bronze Level Patrons can ‘adopt’ or designate donations
for the purchase of specific equipment or items, or can offer support for
general building needs. Share a Bronze
Level Patron Donation of $5,000. or more!
* Silver Level Patron – Building Room Sponsors: You or your family can financially ‘sponsor’ a particular
room in the new hall. Do so in the name of a special Patron Saint, in honor of
a family member or in memory of a loved one. Silver Level Patrons can name a
room of your choice: a church school room, the office or the choir room. Share a Silver Level Patron Sponsorship Donation
of $7,500 or more!
* Gold Level Partner Patron – For those able to make larger donations, we invite you
to become a partner and make St. George Hall an expansion we can all be proud
of; something which becomes a vital aspect of parish life and serves the local
community. Gold Level Partners can name the new kitchen, bookstore or dining
hall in honor of a special Patron Saint, a family member or in memory of a
loved one. Share a Gold Level Patron
Sponsorship Donations of $10,000 or more!
