Most recently, in February of this year, the working committee for Saint Marc’s was reactivated and a strong movement was put in action to implement a capital fundraising campaign.
As a result, seed money was secured from the United Church Foundation and from private donors.
We were also able to secure training funds in the amount of $12,000 from M’Chigeeng First Nation to employ an Indigenous Project Manager to head up the project along with a part time advisory support person.
The church was able to raise a total of $60,000 to begin the planning of the project between June and December 2021.
Funds have been secured to extend this project to the end of March 2022. It is the hope of this team to extend this time frame to complete our fundraising goal.
It is very important to note that the working committee must be recognized as they were the driving force for this project.
