Give a Hat or a Coat this Christmas!The Kelenföld Montázs Központ – or KMK – is a ministry and community center in Budapest that provides a home for three churches,15 ministry and community organizations, and the Montázs Art Café coffeehouse, and serves around 1,200 per week. But the 1970s-era building, now around 45 years old, is starting to show its age.
The exterior of the building has been falling into disrepair. The outer layer of concrete stucco is falling off in chunks – some of them large! The opening of the Metro4 and the rehabilitation of Bikás Park sparked a great deal of physical renewal in the neighborhood, and so the KMK, once “on par” with the rest of the surrounding buildings, is now looking very bad. It is important that the building be both safe and inviting to those it serves. It’s time for the KMK to get a new coat! The building’s exterior can be repaired for $100,000, of which 69% has been committed.
Double-Matching Grant Offer!We have been offered a generous double-matching grant for funds given to this project through December 31, 2017.
This means that the first $25,000 given to the building exterior project by year-end will become $75,000! Contribute to the “coat” project by directing your gift of US dollars to EFCA project account 5895.
Giving by Hungarian bank transfer is also possible, via the Bátorítás Alapítvány. Please indicate "KMK felújítás" in the közlemény field.
The flat roof is in need of a complete replacement. Regular leaks have caused damage to the building interior and some of its furnishings, and considerable funds have already been spent on temporary fixes. In order to preserve the integrity of the structure, it is important that the roof replacement happen in 2018. It’s time for the KMK to get a new hat! The cost of the roof repair is $65,000, of which 100% has been committed! Thanks to God's provision through the generosity of His people, the roof can be replaced in 2018!
THANK YOU FOR CONSIDERING HOW YOU MIGHT MAKE THESE IMPORTANT NEEDS A PART OF YOUR YEAR-END GIVING!
