At Generous Space Ministries, we receive no government funding, very few grants, and rely on donations for 80% of our budget, which averages just over $28,000/month in expenses.
Our monthly donor commitments have meant that we have been able to grow! In the last five years, we have gone from 2 Generous Space groups to 30 across Canada and beyond. This year we will host three retreats in Ontario, B.C, and New Brunswick in addition to many one-day events and our summer CampOUT! We work with local congregations in nearly every province. Wendy serves full-time, Beth is three-quarter time, and Jamie, Holli, Caro and Becca are part-time. And we’re so grateful that the reach of the ministry is exponentially increased by a host of dedicated volunteers.
With all of this growth, the truth is, our staff are often stretched beyond their capacity with all the opportunities, initiatives, and needs that arise. We are eager to continue growing as a ministry – our goal for our 6th Summer Drive Campaign is to raise $2000 in new and increased monthly donations and $10,000 in one-time donations!
