Advent Project Proposals Sought

Advent Project Proposals Sought by St. Anne’s Mission Service Committee

If you are volunteering for a non-profit organization that does outreach to people outside of St. Anne’s Parish, here is a chance to help that group/agency. St. Anne’s Mission Service Committee is looking for Project Proposals for the Advent Season. In the past we have raised funds for Blessings in a Backpack, the People to People Project in Laos, the Marathon County Hunger Coalition, the Wausau Warming Center and many more. The project would be promoted during Advent, 2014 and would have a maximum fundraising goal of $5,000.

Project Proposal forms can be picked up at the Parish office, in the racks in the south & west gathering spaces of church, and are also available on the parish website. Deadline for submitting a proposal is September 11.

Mission Service Project Proposals

Mission Service Committee is looking for service project proposals.  Here is an opportunity for parishioners to make project proposals to the Mission Service Committee.  We will consider projects that serve people in need, whether on a local, national or international level.  These projects would usually have fund raising goals of over $2,000.

To be considered, the project proposals would need to be submitted by August to the Mission Service Committee.  A presentation of the project proposal should include the goals of the project, what resources are requested from the Church of St. Anne (financial, spiritual, facilities, people power, etc.) and information about the project plan and the people who will implement the plan.  Proposal forms are available from Jennifer Kareken in the parish office, call 715-849-3930 x303 or just download from the link below:
