There Are Many Ways You Can Help

The ClubHouse will be as unique as the families we service.  We will create a space that is totally accessibly and fully accommodating to our most severely disadvantaged students allowing everyone to have an equal playing field.

We need $500,000 to open inClusion ClubHouse. Rent for a year approximately $175,000 for up to 7,700sf. Renovations approximately $100,000 for accessibility and safety upgrades. Equipment and furnishings $100,000 for specialized equipment & rooms. Operational Expenses & Staffing $125,000.

Our goal is to raise a year’s worth of expenses so that we can open and focus on outreach, services and programs to make sure that we are providing our families with everything they need and not on how we will pay the rent.

Why do we need $500,000.00?
It is the goal of our parish to be debt free at the completion of construction. The pledge drive monies will help to insure this goal. The $500,000 is to open inClusion ClubHouse.

When will we start?
Provided that we are able to reach our funding goal, proposed ground breaking is March 2018.

How long will construction take?
The current estimate is 6–12 months. Once we award the contract we will be able to get a more accurate time of completion.

What type of contribution are you requesting?
Ideally, we would like you to make a personal gift to inClusion Clubhouse in an amount that is comfortable for you. In the past, these have ranged from $100, $250 and $500. We are also asking that you or your association make an annual contribution, so that, collectively, we can lead initiatives that will help associations remain viable and relevant into the future.

If I commit to a specific amount over a period of time, what is the legal recourse if I default on my commitment?
There is no legal recourse. If you have a life changing event occur or any other personal reason why you need to stop your donation(s) for any period of time, just notify the office and the office will process a stop payment which will take effect one month following the request for stop payment.

Will I be able to use my pledge(s) as a tax deduction?
Our parish is a 501(c)(3) organization; therefore your contributions are deductible. Individual donors should take their own personal financial situations into account and possibly consult their financial advisors to ascertain the tax advantages their gifts may create. All donors will receive a yearly contribution statement from the parish.

What assurances are there that we won’t have overruns?
At this time we only have an estimate construction cost. Fixed costs will be available when the bid and contractor is chosen.

Can I make a donation on behalf of a special needs child?
Yes. We are currently looking into what form of recognition will be implemented.

Can donors volunteer to do work on the church as a means of service?
We appreciate our donor’s willingness to serve; however, for your safety we are only going to use licensed contractors.
