Annual Easter Offering Reports

Thanks to the generosity of the Marble congregation which provided Easter Offering gift donations in the amount of $228,000, we were able to support over 50 organizations in our city and the world. The Easter Offering grants help these organizations continue the work they do every day to assist those in need and act as the voice of the marginalized and oppressed.

Thank You from our Easter Offering Recipients:

The Easter Offering recipients have been chosen and all grant awards have been sent out. We have amassed quite a stack of thank you letters from the many grateful organizations whose missions and outreach will continue to flourish from grants provided by your generous support. Read what a few of them have to say below.

Thank you Marble Collegiate Church for supporting our efforts to provide food, clothes, shelter and , most importantly, the love the young people who come to us so desperately need means so much. The summer brings an influx of kids looking for a safe haven from the dangers lurking on the street. As a result we have a difficult time providing life-saving help to every child who needs us. That is why this support is so important to us. Again, thank you for your generosity. May God bless you.
- Kevin Ryan, President, Covenant House New York

Our hungry neighbors come to us for food and we treat them with dignity. In our pantry they choose for themselves from fresh, healthy and high quality food on our shelves.... Our bilingual councilors work in partnership with people to develop long term solutions to the root cause of hunger.... We also work with people to transition them into the workplace. Last year over 150 of our clients found work in partnership with Madison Strategies. Our fabulous Chef Training Program provides work skills for those not quite job-ready... Nearly 75% of the graduates find work or continue their education.... Thank you for the support from your congregation.
- Stewart Desmond, Executive Director, West Side Campaign Against Hunger

On behalf of the students, residents, staff and Board of the Center Against Domestic Violence, the oldest non-profit organization established to provide residential services for those made homeless by domestic abuse, thank you for your generous support of our Camp Excel Program. It is because of you that we are able to provide exceptional residential services to youths and domestic violence survivors and their children. We appreciate having Marble Collegiate Church as an ally in the effort to end domestic violence.
- Miguel Ramirez, Program Development Associate, Center Against Domestic Violence

Thank you for helping us continue our mission to create a lasting culture of kindness with your generous grant.... We will continue to use a combination of research, advocacy and education to measurably improve the quality of life for young people subjected to bullying, harassment and humiliation.
- Sean M. Kosofsky, Executive Director, Tyler Clementi Foundation
