Glenview’s Healthy Church Match is a 5 year capital fund raising campaign aimed at making a major investment in people, programs and places designed to make the Truths of the Writings more accessible. This will be achieved by contacting a broad and diverse base of contributors who have a connection to the Glenview New Church as a current member or as a friend, alumni or a person who has had Glenview as their "Society of Origin."
The proceeds of these locally raised funds will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the General Church up to 2 Million Dollars. The funds will be used to make a more welcoming place with upgrades to some of our facilities and landscape. We will build endowment funds to be perpetually self sufficient in funding programs and tools to grow Church activities and uses for our children, youths and adults. Funds will be used to improve our school’s technical, cultural and athletic initiatives while working for formal school accreditation and scholarship assistance. For detailed information, please read this document.
All of this is designed to coordinate with the General Church and the Academy of the New Church's world-wide effort to have 1 million "meaningful contacts" in the next 30 years. Let us do Glenview's part – this is definitely "a VISION worth fighting for."
