Dear Keith Mason
Re: Church Fundraising
It is my pleasure as the Church Board Chairman to inform you that our church is planning a fundraising event to purchase another building on Kelly Street, in conjunction with our outreach program.
From our community survey, there is a need to set up a church in the Fourth District to meet the needs of the community there. An available 3-storey building is available for sale at $1.2 million. After much discussion, the Church Board is agreeable to the purchase.
We are appealing to all members to participate in our fundraising to raise $1 million for the said purchase. Every community is encouraged to hold a fundraising event in the next six months.
Please refer to your community leader for details on the fundraising. Thank you for your active involvement in the church plans.
With God’s blessings,
