It has been several years since the Christian-Jewish Council has solicited funds.† This fall we we reinstituted our fundraising drive.
During the past several years many have contributed to our greatly expanded program.† Never before in our history have we presented as much as we did the last year.† In recent years the C-JC has achieved IRS designation as a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization, created and maintained a website, and expanded its database to more than 950 individuals and organizations interested in building bridges across faith boundaries.† Our president, Father Dow Marshall Sanderson, of Holy Communion Episcopal Church, has written a letter encouraging donations.† A copy is attached.† Please consider this thoughtfully.
Additionally, let me make an update to our report on the Thanksgiving service.† The service produced contributions toward the Christian-Jewish Councilís own operations of $90, we had approximately 75 in attendance, and collected more than 20 bags of food.† In addition to the food, contributions to the Lowcountry Food Bank were just under $300.
The Christian-Jewish Council of Greater Charleston is an organization that seeks to build bridges of understanding to promote sensitivity, tolerance, respect and fellowship among all faith groups.† It is recognized by the IRS as 501(c)(3) qualified.† Its website is www.CharlestonCJC.org
