Subject: Windows Into Our Future

Hola Pilgrim!

Tomorrow evening, we will be launching an exciting, timely, and important project for Pilgrim's school and overall work in the community.

Windows Into Our Future is our Fund a Need project this year! 

The 30 windows on the west side of our building (facing the alley) are old, drafty, and energy inefficient, failing to reduce the constant alley noise and failing to provide any protection from UV rays. Window replacement would make a significant improvement for our students' learning environment. 
What is the budget for this project?

The full-cost for new windows plus the cost of construction to install them is approximately $170,000. We are working with our partners at CLEF (Chicago Lutheran Education Foundation) to raise half of this amount. We need your help in raising the other half. Our goal is $85,000, and our appeal is to both school families and church members.
What are the different ways in which we might give?
- Monthly Donations through electronic giving: We are excited to give families the opportunity to make a greater impact through a monthly donation to this project. Setting up your monthly donation is easy at:

- Individual Sponsorship. Families could sponsor a window for $3,000 (through a one time gift, or monthly gifts) in honor or remember someone. A plaque would be placed by the window to recognize this gift of this kind.

- A one time donation tomorrow night, or any time. We accept matching corporate gifts, as well as gifts of stock.

What is the timeline for the project?

We have 12 months to fund the project, so that new windows will be ready for installation in Summer 2019, just in time for the 2019-20 school year.

If you have any questions, please contact the school office.

Pilgrim, we can do this! Thank you everyone for your support and participation in Windows for our Future!
