For Immediate Release
November 23, 2014

Rochester, NY – St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church of Rochester, NY celebrated the near conclusion of a successful capital stewardship campaign to fund two fellowship halls renovation plan, additional funds for their Endowment and the annual operating budget. In addition to the operating budget with many pledges yet to be received, the capital funds campaign of $1,869,367 for the renovation and endowment was the most ever raised in the history of the church. The celebration, following after each Sunday Worship Service on November 22 & 23, was the culmination of a 12 week campaign conducted by James D. Klote and Associates of Falls Church, Virginia.

Doubling the amount in the Endowment fund was half of the purpose for the campaign. Improvements will include enhanced audio/visual systems, new flooring, renovated fellowship halls and other architectural enhancements.

The Reverend Craig Uffman along with Co-chairs Sue Scanlon, Jane Andrews & John Langfitt led a team of over thirty volunteers in this every-member visitation campaign. Providing direction for the initial study and campaign was Glendon Smith, a Director from James D. Klote and Associates, utilizing a full-time resident consultant for the plan of campaign.
