Giving to the Building Together Campaign
The District launched the Building Together. In Christ. For Mission. Capital Campaign in 2017 to support renovation of the District Office in Seward and the University Chapel in Lincoln. Security and accessibility were key issues behind both renovation projects. Both had gone decades without any substantial improvements.
The campaign, thanks to the support of 76 district congregations, 605 individuals and 6 foundations, has reached over $3.3 million in gifts and pledges. The cost for both renovation projects, which were completed in 2019, was $4.5 million.
For questions about making a pledge or gift, please contact Joyce Bruha at the District office by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by phone at 888-643-2961.

Other gifts such as IRA distributions, stock, bonds, grain, property, etc.
Gifts of stock, bonds or mutual funds are other options. Start the process by visiting with your financial adviser. Gifts such as property can provide a tax benefit to the donor. Gifts through your IRA distributions allow you to give directly to the campaign or to a District ministry.
If you are 70.5 or older, you can donate up to $100,000 from your IRA direct to the campaign or a district ministry. Start the process by visiting with your financial adviser.
Gifts to a campaign or ministry can have even greater impact when given with a corporate match. Ask the HR manager where you work if your employer has a corporate match.
