What Is Mission 52? It’s a chance to serve your community in a deliberate and sustained way while supporting the ongoing work of the Center for FaithJustice. The goal of Mission 52 is to provide a coordinated effort where everyday people can commit themselves to serving those in need while supporting CFJ with grassroots fundraising.
Here’s how it works: Over the course of 52 weeks, a participant makes a deliberate commitment to volunteer at least 52 hours – an average of 1 hour per week – in service to those in need. In addition to their volunteer service, each participant is asked to collect donations from friends, family and colleagues that will be used to support the work at CFJ. These contributions are tax deductible and will help CFJ to continue to provide and sponsor service opportunities for individuals and groups throughout the year.
Who are Mission 52 Volunteers? They’re young adults, retirees, professionals, families; they’re people in different cities; they’re people who have decided to serve those in need, participate in their communities, and help ensure that the Center for FaithJustice is able to live out its mission to “provide transformative experiences of faith in action, build community, serve those in need, educate for justice, and empower people to change the world.”
What do Mission 52 Volunteers do? Participants give 52 hours of service over the course of a self-defined year (52 weeks) and help CFJ raise funds for future projects by asking others to sponsor their commitment to service. In this way, Mission 52 Volunteers “support service by serving.”
