St. Luke’s staff and lay leaders have been hard at work to move the projects of the Transformed Capital Campaign forward. While our generous congregation met our original goal of $23,050,000, the cost of the projects has grown to $33,204,037 due to the increased cost of construction (both labor and materials) for the Community Center building, as well as rising interest rates for the construction loan.
To date, 80% of the funds are committed: 70% through our amazing congregation and 10% in grants from two community foundations: the David Weekley Family Foundation has committed $250,000 along with a challenge grant of an additional $250,000 specifically to support the new Community Center, and the J.E. & L.E. Mabee Foundation has made a $2,000,000 challenge grant for the Community Center. We continue to seek funding to make our campaign goals a reality through other community grant-making foundations.
