Matching Grant

Several members of our parish have come together to create a matching grant of $4,000!
Here’s how the matching grant works: If you fill out a
pledge card with what you hope to give to the parish for the remaining six months of this year OR increase your pledge that you already made, whatever you give will be doubled!
You may fill out a pledge, or increase your existing pledge online by simply CLICKING HERE.
This grant will help us move further away from needing proceeds from our Thrift Store ministry to support our operating expenses. What an incredibly joyous moment it will be when we can say to the wider community that 100% of the profits from all the hours volunteered, items donated, and dollars spent go to mission and outreach.
Support mission and outreach is a vital part of our parish, whether via our own parish initiatives or in partnering with other organizations, including providing space to AA, NA, Alternatives to Violence, Vietnam Veteran Support Group and the Waimea Community Chorus; our ministries such as the Prayer Shawl Ministry, our New Youth Ministries Coordinator position and our Youth Scholarship program; as well as partnering with other organizations this year such West Hawaii Domestic Abuse Center, Hope Ministries, Child & Family Services, Friends of the Future, Annunciation Food Pantry, Kawaihae Canoe Club Youth Program, and Convoy of Hope.
At present, we are using about $80,000 of monies from the Thrift Store for parish operating expenses.
If you have any questions, please do not the parish office.
Remember, what you pledge is between you and God. What I do ask is that you take what you hope to give into your prayer life.
With deep appreciation for the many ways people give of their time, talents, and treasure to support what God is seeking to do in and through St. James’, St. Columba’s, and our Beach Mass.
