Together We Grow

Our Campaign by the Numbers...

The Revised Goal:        

$4,000,000

Total Pledges as of
April 30, 2021

$3,546,634
 

 THE GOAL OF THE CAMPAIGN IS 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 April 30, 2021, we have collected $ 3,192,685 in pledges and $14,425 in direct payments to St. Max for the TWG campaign.  That is a total of $3,207,110.

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.
$ 1,178,312 resides in our campaign accounts (includes $18,472 interest).
$ 4,000 was paid to obtain boring samples.
$ 82,030 went to design and architectural fees.
$ 183,911 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 April 30, 2021, we have paid $86,030 in expenses for the project.
  • As of April 30, 2021, total funds available for the project (including outstanding pledges) are $1,276,195.
  •  As you can see, that creates a shortfall of $292,123 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  $33,326 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.

TOGETHER WE GROW MATCH SUCCESSFUL!

Thanks to the extraordinary generosity of our parishioners we have met the $218,200 matching grant. This brings us much closer to meeting our goal of breaking ground in the Fall. But we still need your help. Please consider making a pledge or one-time donation. Thank you for your support!
