Project Cost

The total estimated cost for the restoration project is $1.5 million:

  • $465,000 to replicate the belfry
  • $410,000 to restore the exterior
  • $625,000 to renovate the interior

Fundraising Goal

We are working to raise $500,000 from pledges, donations, grants, and historic tax credits. With our benefactor’s 2:1 Challenge Match, we can cover the entire project cost.

We’re on our way! Our application for $300,000 in historic tax credits is under review. With $64,000 in pledges and donations already in-hand – we need to raise $136,000.

Your gift will be tripled!

Generous friends of the congregation with a love for historic restoration have made an extraordinary Challenge Match Offer: For every $1 we raise – they’ll match it with $2!
