Thank you to all who participated in Erie Gives this year. Your generosity throughout the year and on Erie Gives day make ministries like Sunday Suppers, Our Neighbor’s Place, and Covenant Connections in our community possible. We would especially like to thank Nancy Irwin and Jen Koebe for all the publicity they did surrounding this special day. First Covenant participated in Erie Gives day on August 14. Donations were made to the First Presbyterian Church of the Covenant through the day on the Erie Gives website at www.eriegives.org. In 2017, each gift provided a net match of 4.48% thanks to the Erie Foundation’s generous sponsors. Your donation to first Covenant goes a lot farther on Erie Gives Day because of the Erie Community Foundation’s contributions. By joining the Nonprofit Partnership it enables us to participate in the programs and services offered by the Erie Community Foundation throughout the year.
