2015 General Fund Matching Challenge

In response to the shortfall for the 2015 General Fund, a $1,000 Matching Donation has been made to Trinity.  All gifts (not regular pledges) made to the general fund between now and December 31, 2014 will be matched up to a total of $1,000.  This is a wonderful way to address the shortage.  Please write “Match” on the memo line of your check.
