Summer Appeal – $50,000 Matching Campaign
To close the gap between our program revenue and our true operating costs, we count on donations from our field. Each gift helps to ensure the availability of our Christian Science nursing services to those calling in a time of need.
This summer we are offering a $50,000 Matching Campaign. Through the generous support of friends of Lynn House, donations will be matched dollar-for-dollar, essentially doubling the value of each gift.
Contributions to this Summer Campaign will support our general operating costs, including salaries for our dedicated Christian Science nursing staff, building maintenance costs, and nursing equipment.
With every gift that we receive, we feel the love and support of our field – which, in turn, strengthens our ability to serve. Every gift is invaluable and deeply appreciated.
Building Project – Cottage
To support our Christian Science nurses (both current and future), Lynn House is embarking on a project to rebuild the cottage on the edge of our property. The new cottage will provide:
- temporary housing for Christian Science nurses or nursing students
- a kitchen/living room area that has the flexibility to double as a classroom space for Christian Science nurses training when needed
It will replace a cottage that was onsite when Lynn House acquired our property in the 1960’s. Over the years, the cottage has served as a home-away-from-home for Christian Science nurses coming here to help on a temporary basis. A couple of years ago, however, we found that the cottage had serious structural damage and could no longer be used. At that time, we received a generous donation that allowed us to move forward on plans for rebuilding it. In working with an architect, we have developed a flexible design that will support Christian Science nurses coming to Lynn House for training and/or for working on our nursing floor.
The estimated cost of this project is $2.5 million. Donations received as of June 2022 cover 31%.
For those who would like to contribute, we have established a Building Project Fund. Donations can be made online (click here) or by check. We would also welcome calls about other ways to give – or calls with any questions about this project.
We view this project as an important investment in Christian Science nursing, and we are most grateful for both your financial and prayerful support.
