We are pleased to report that the Rolin M. Gerstacker Foundation has approved a matching grant in an amount of $30,000 toward a barrier-free, vertical platform lift (VPL) for our Care Chapel! The foundation will contribute $30,000 if Caregiving Network is able to raise $10,000. The cost of the entire lift project is approximately $40,000. Due to regulations for accessibility, we cannot open the building without a VPL. Please consider helping us reach that $10,000 goal so we can secure the $30,000 from Gerstacker’s most generous offer. We need your help to get us there! Be sure to specify by writing “ELEVATOR” on check memo line or in comment box if giving online. This is the only way the funds donated will be given toward the match. Read more here.
In the fall of 2018, The Barstow Foundation granted Caregiving $15,000 toward ADA compliant bathrooms - also necessary to re-open the chapel for ministry growth.
Blessed Sacrament Church will be awarding CgN with $2,500 toward appliances, for the chapel community teaching kitchen, in February.
