✶ Capital Campaign ✶ 2021 - 2023 ✶ Second Presbyterian Church ✶
Our Sacred Place, Second Presbyterian Church, has been the cornerstone of the South Loop Community since 1874. Not since a fire necessitated that we renovate the building in 1901 have we undertaken such a massive, basic, update to our building.
It is time to ensure that our Sacred Place is a Safe Space for all who enter. It is time to renovate the electric, heating, cooling and access to our building to make it safe, usable, and accessible, ADA compliant, for all.
The community depends on us and we depend on your donation. It's time to give, please help.
If you are ready to give online, please click on the button above. Please, we need your support. Even if you are a visiting guest or just have a few dollars to share, please give online above today. Your donation is most appreciated and it will help to transform the lives of others in our community for decades to come.
If you are ready to make a long term commitment or a larger donation, please fill out the online pledge card on the right. Your pledge will help us reach our fundraising goals and we can use your pledge as a match for our $250,000 2 to 1 grant.
Your Pledge Means So Much to Us and
Those We Serve.
Your support means so much. By supporting our Capital Campaign, you’ll be supporting more than just our church buildings; you’ll be supporting the many mission critical ministries we provide as a neighborhood church to our community. Your support now will provide a safe, attractive, functional and desirable space for a variety of services and for all the people in our community who we serve for years to come. Thank You!
As we said above, our buildings have not undergone such a massive and basic update since 1901 and a fire mandated that we rebuild. We now endeavor to undertake a three year, $1,250,000, upgrade to our buildings for safety, code compliance and operational efficiency.
These are not the glamorous things that get the most attention (and donations). These are the basic, foundational, items that always need to be in working condition, in the background, to provide a safe, appealing, functional and accessible space for all to utilize and enjoy.
We appeal to your good senses and pride of ownership to help us reach our fund raising goal.
