God uses PEER Servants’ annual Banquet Offering to positively impact the lives of the materially poor in very significant ways. In 2019, we received over $103,000 through the Offering. Thank you to everyone who gave so generously!
One of the primary purposes for our Banquet Offering is to provide grants to Special Projects submitted by our global partners. It’s not too late to participate! You can select any of our global partner’s Special Projects (see details below) and we will direct 100% of your donation to them for specific needs they have beyond their daily operations. Our goal is to direct $100,000 of our donations to support these 2019 Special Project Grants – we will update our progress in meeting that goal on a daily basis. Our 2019 Special Project Fund is open through December 31, 2019.
Thank you for your generosity to our Banquet Offering and our 2019 Special Project Fund.
