The board of directors of NEFC set some specific goals for the October fundraising banquet, as well as some decisions about where our greatest needs are.
Clearly - we still have a lot of work to do in order to complete our building project. However, it became evident, once we had time for our new director to get settled in to camp and to get through the first summer under his leadership, that we needed to step back and re-focus our fundraising efforts. Specifically, we have temporarily halted our fundraising for the new building, in an effort to shore up the giving to our general operations.
Fundraising Banquet Message
Recently I had the privilege of sharing some thoughts regarding the challenge that is before us in funding the needed projects, programs and salaries of those who serve at New England Frontier Camp. When I think of the word “challenge” I often consider it as code for “problem”, but that is only one take on this expression. One might see a challenge as an obstacle to overcome and therefore a fearful thing. Another person might see the obstacle as just the thing they needed to inspire them to show their skill, ability or true character. Well, the challenge we have before us is nothing new. The challenge ultimately comes from Christ. In Matthew 28:18-20, Jesus was with his disciples after His resurrection . . .
