You can go to the Grow Green website to find out more. If you click on the “How It Works” tab on the webpage, you will see that there are some restrictions. For example, the 50% match applies only to donations from $25 to $1000, and there are some additional rules that apply to donations made to two or more organizations through Grow Green.
As in previous years, the 50% match funds will go into the church’s annual budget in the budget line labeled “fundraising.” The endowed accounts at GMCF also support the church budget, in that a return of 4% annually is made available to the church for immediate use. These returns are considered part of the annual contribution of the investments to the church budget.
Please consider a gift to the church through the Grow Green event on April 20. You can do it in person at the Colony Square atrium or remotely from your computer. If you do it in person, your name goes into a hat for a drawing each hour for a $100 door prize that goes to your chosen organization. The church has benefitted from the door prize in each of the past two years.
