Together We Grow

Our Campaign by the Numbers...

The Original Goal:        

$3,500,000

Total Pledges as of
August 31, 2020

$3,459,144
 

 THE GOAL OF THE CAMPAIGN WAS THREEFOLD:

  1. Fulfill our obligation as part of the One Faith, One Hope, One Love Archdiocesan Campaign.
  2. Pay off the parish debt.
  3. Expand our facilities by adding a community room, a large meeting room and a new entrance.  

WHERE ARE WE NOW?
As of August 31, 2020, we have collected $ 2,724,660 in pledges and $14,425 in direct payments to St. Max for the TWG campaign.  That is a total of $2,739,085.

WHERE IS THIS MONEY NOW?
$ 1,395,105 was used to fulfill our obligation to the archdiocesan campaign.
$ 468,254 paid off our parish debt.
$ 591,148 resides in our campaign accounts
$ 4,000 was paid to obtain boring samples (November, 2019)
$ 45,935 went to design and architectural fees.
$ 234,643 is due to be received from the Catholic Community Foundation

WHERE ARE WE GOING FROM HERE?

  • The most recent estimate we have received for the full and completed expansion, including furnishings, is approximately $ 2,175,797.  
  • As of August 31, 2020, outstanding pledges are $1,617,241.
  •  As you can see, that creates a shortfall of $558,556 of additional pledges needed.

While our hope is to be able to generate enough additional pledges to fully fund this project, we also recognize the challenge of doing so.  If we aim for completing just the new entrance and the shell of the expansion, the estimated cost would be around $1,917,000.  That shortfall would only be $ 299,759 in additional pledges needed.

Regardless, we recognize with gratitude that a dedicated group of very generous parishioners continues to make their pledges and support the campaign.  We also recognize the need for increased support from everyone in  the parish. Please keep in mind that in order to break ground, we must have in hand 50% of the budget and the remaining 50% in pledges to complete the expansion.
