Since February 2020, I’ve been working in the ELCIR Central Office as the head of the project support department or, simply said, fundraising department.
Our department is a new subdivision that was launched this year and it pursues the ambitious goal of raising money for our congregations.
So far, we’ve been doing “stage 1” of the work, building a database of specific needs—what the congregations need to function properly.
Afterwards, based on the needs known to our department, we will research potential donors.
My assistance is based on the purpose of the department.
Firstly, it’s assistance in communicating as our department is the mouthpiece that any congregation can use to make known their needs, after which the information will be processed in the Central Office. The congregations are getting more opportunities to be heard.
Secondly, it’s actual assistance by appealing to donors and, as a result, raising funds for our congregations.
The internet being the main media now, contact our department at this email address: elciraising [a] gmail.com
