FPC’s Building Campaign Project to help reduce medical debt a GRAND SUCCESS!  You can help, too!

Medical debt is the source of incredible inequities, keeping families mired in debt and impeding their ability to build assets. Plus, it adds enormously to emotional stress. That’s why First Presbyterian Church is leading this campaign as one reparations strategy. The potential to WIPE OUT DEBT for pennies on the dollar is amazing! When you make a pledge to our capital campaign, you are already supporting this project. If you have not already made a pledge, we hope you will join us in giving to our Building Beloved Community campaign!  To learn more about how this debt is eliminated, click here . SEE OUR PHASE 1 RESULTS HERE.

Please invite your family and friends to add to the amount we give to relieve medical debt. Give in the name of FPC’s Building Beloved Community campaign when phase 2 begins in 2023.
