Phil Olson Legacy Fund
A year ago, our world lost a great soul. Over this past year, Phil Olson’s legacy continues to impact churches as they support families facing homelessness!
Last year, we raised $28,845, exceeding our goal of $25,000, for the establishment of the Phil Olson Legacy Fund for Engaging Churches in Ending Homelessness. We are overwhelmed with gratitude for this legacy of Phil’s deep belief in the difference the church can make in ending homelessness.
Phil’s personal hope was to see this fund reach $50,000, so to that end, this fund will remain open for another 18 months (until March 31, 2020) for anyone who would wish to make an additional gift designated for this fund, whether at this 1 year anniversary or at another point in time.
Beginning in 2021, this fund will provide ongoing annual support to further engage and resource churches and Christian faith communities in stepping forward to serve as Neighboring Volunteers to help homeless families.
Phil’s joy, humor, and commitment to walking with Jesus has touched the lives of hurting people. And his life deeply impacted my own faith journey, and likely yours as well.
May we each find joy, hope and possibilities in the God who is faithful, and who was the source of light in Phil’s life – and in our lives as well.Donate Today
