We are seeking to provide 500 disadvantaged Durham Public Schools (DPS) children with hotspots and wi-fi service for remote learning thru January of 2021. We can accomplish this with a gift of $25,000. DPS Foundation (DPSF) is a charitable 501(c)(3) launched in September of 2018 whose objectives include an “Accelerating Digital Equity” campaign. For more details about this initiative, you may read this letter.
You have the opportunity to give generously to this campaign now. Through September 13, your Elders (via the Session Discretion Fund) and your Mission Formation Team (via one of its budget line-items) are pledging to match all congregational donations to the DPSF on a dollar-for-dollar basis up to $12,500, which promptly accomplishes the $25,000 objective. To donate online, click here and choose “DPS Foundation” under the “Select a Fund” drop-down menu. If you prefer to mail a check to the church, make it payable to Church of the Good Shepherd, and write “DPS Foundation” on the memo line.
