Santa Fe Community Foundation & One Great Hour of Sharing
To respond to the emergency needs—both locally and around the world—generated by the global pandemic, United Church invites you to support an All Church Outreach Fundraiser to provide funds for both local Santa Fe agencies and also global relief and health organizations. (This appeal is over and above our normal pledge and other regular giving.) All donations raised will be evenly split between the Covid19 Emergency Fund of the Santa Fe Community Foundation (that supports organizations such as the Food Depot, Adelante for students in need, etc.) and the multi-church global offering “One Great Hour of Sharing.”
The Santa Fe Community Foundation was chosen because they have the best “pulse” on local needs and the most effective use of funds to respond to those needs. “One Great Hour of Sharing” is our annual special United Church of Christ offering that joins with seven other Protestant denominations to support OGHS’s work around the world, including health care for refugees and immigrants, disaster relief (including the current Covid19 emergency), food, and small farmer programs.
We ask you to be generous. To donate by mail, please mail your check to United Church (1804 Arroyo Chamiso, Santa Fe 87505), memo: “Emergency Offering,” or click the “give now” button and memo your contribution: “Emergency Offering.”
