Kwanzaa Appeal has begun!


Our fiscal year began on October 1, and along with that comes our first major fundraiser, the Kwanzaa Appeal. Kwanzaa Appeal began September 25 and ends February 19, 2012. The Kwanzaa Appeal happens simultaneously with our major first and second quarter activities such as the anniversary of the Institute, Kwanzaa/First Fruits, Martin Luther King Jr. birthday and Supporters Day (Black History Month).

November 2 is the anniversary of First Community Interfaith Institute Inc. and the birthday of National Minister Lawrance Lee Evans Sr. Minister Lawrance Lee Evans has asked that all gifts go to First Community Interfaith Institute Inc. Your tax-deductible donations can be made to First Community Interfaith Institute Inc., 219 Hamilton Street, Rochester NY 14620-1112.
