An interested donor had originally pledged a matching gift of $5000. Thanks to some initial donors we have seen that now doubled to $10,000!
Help us raise the next $10,000.
Update: As of April 18 we have received another $1700 in donations or pledges. Have we heard from you?
Love Ottawa has a vision to come alongside the Church of Ottawa to bring transformation to the 100 neighborhoods of our city. As our starting point we have chosen the Vanier neighborhood as a place to do an in-depth study of its make-up and needs, and in conjunction with the churches there, develop a strategy to impact that area of the city. This initial study will help us to develop expertise, tested methodology and a format to be shared with other congregations and applied to other neighborhoods and regions of Ottawa in years to come.
A small gift to a City-wide Vision
We are within one week of moving on to the next stage of our neighbourhood study. We are ready to hire two bright, Christian, university students for two full-time, 16-week, summer positions where they will serve alongside our team in Vanier. We can’t do the work without them but we do not have the financial resources to offer the positions. We have $10,000.00 thanks to some initial donors, and need another $10,000 to pay two students a moderate wage for four months of skilled work. More details here.
We need your help. Can you make a small contribution toward a large vision?
As an indication of your support, please simply write us a short email indicating your name and your pledge of $50, $75 or $100 toward Love Ottawa’s Vanier Neighbourhood Study. Send us a note.
Your partnership will be of great encouragement to us at this time.
