Unique Opportunity to Complete Phase 1 Fundraising

In early October, 2017, the National Fund for Sacred Places announced that the Shrine was invited to be a grant recipient: Press Release & National Fund Collateral Document.

All capital grants awarded from the National Fund for Sacred Places require a cash match. Since the Shrine had made a request for $250,000 in order to help finance the new roof system project, it sought out to raise 2:1 matching funds in the amount of $500,000 in pledges, cash gifts, or in other ways described on the printed informational materials. Thus, because of the grant, every $1 that was donated and given to the restoration fund between October 1, 2017 and April 1, 2018, became $1.50.

We are thrilled to announce that the goal of raising $500,000 in pledges or cash by Easter Sunday, April 1, 2018, in order to receive the $250,000 grant from the National Fund was reached!

$585,334 Raised of $500,000 Goal

The $250,000 grant money will be received this Summer upon completion of the roof construction. The combined $750,000 ($500,000 raised in cash and pledges + $250,000 grant) will bring us to our $3,000,000 for Phase 1.

Thank you for your generosity and prayers!
