A Note To Our Supporters
The Franciscan Foundation for the Holy Land values our relationships with donors, volunteers and everyone interested in our work. In that spirit we want you to know about some recent changes inside our organization.
Over the past several months, members of our Board have been engaged in a review of our existing arrangements to manage the public relations, marketing and data management functions of our organization. As a result of that review process, I am pleased to announce that since April 1, 2018 a new group has been engaged to perform those services, previously conducted by Tekton Ministries. Our new organization manager will be DeLauro and Associates Consulting.
James DeLauro, Ph.D., the founder and principal of that firm, has managed and consulted with charitable Foundations on a national basis continuously since 1983. He has assembled a team of specialists with skills in the areas of public relations, marketing, graphic design, copywriting, direct mail, data management, website and social media development. We are hopeful that their skill in these areas will allow us to continue to grow in the service of our mission to help stem the Christian exodus from the Holy Land through humanitarian programs and projects thus allowing Christians to remain in their land.
Tekton Ministries will remain with us on a reduced basis for a temporary period to ensure a smooth transition to our new service provider. We are confident that this new management arrangement will allow us to better carry out the work to which we all are so dedicated.
As a part of that transition, we have a new toll-free number 855-500-FFHL (3345) and a new email address [email protected] that you may use to contact us with any questions, concerns or for information.
Thank you in advance for your patience and support during this transition period.
December 1st, 2017: The FFHL achieves a Four Star Rating Read the Letter from Charity Navigator here!
for the fourth year in a row!
Today, there are approximately 150,000 Christians living in the Holy Land. Due to severe political and economic hardships, hundreds of Christian families leave the Holy Land each year. This steady Christian exodus from the land where Christianity began suggests that within the next 50 years, the Christian community will cease to exist unless something is done.
As the Christian population struggles to survive in a volatile political environment of ethnic distrust, the FFHL uses every available resource to give Christians a reason to remain in their home; thus accomplishing our mission of safeguarding the Christian presence in the Holy Land.
“THE FOCUS OF FFHL IS TO PRESERVE THE CHRISTIAN PRESENCE IN THE HOLY LAND BY PROVIDING KEY NECESSITIES TO EVERYDAY LIFE.”
These programs are supported by the generosity of our donors. Please consider making a tax exempt donation to a program of your choice to do your part to safeguard the Christian presence in the Holy Land.
