2019 Annual Appeal
Support Our Mission
The Good News is so much more than the support groups that we offer. While these groups are very important and help so many individuals and couples, we have been able to offer so much more because of your donations.
Let us introduce you to Father John Ignatius of The Servants of Christ Jesus. Father stayed with us at The Good News Center with five young men discerning the priesthood. We were able to offer them space for an entire month at a reasonable price so that they could host a silent retreat.
Right on their heels, we hosted for two weeks, the Sisters of the Servants of the Lord and the Virgin of Matara, who stayed with us as a part of their community days. They prayed and relaxed together for those weeks.
In the early part of August we had thirty-eight (38) teenagers with chaperones who learned about Pro-Life issues for an entire weekend through a program called Camp Esther. Through our grant program, we were able to gift them with resources that allowed them to bring this group here from all over Upstate New York.
Your donations support these groups as well as the peer support groups we offer throughout the year.
Please consider making a donation to support our mission of spiritual growth and renewal, individual's, parish communities and family life.
In order to provide programs to members of the community at low or no cost, The Good News Center relies on the generous support of others. We do not turn anyone away due to lack of funds, which would not be possible without your financial assistance.
The Good News Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Please see your tax advisor regarding the tax implication of a contribution.
The 1992 Society
In 2017, The Good News Foundation celebrated its twenty-fifth anniversary. The Foundation began in 1992 as the brain child of Deacon John and Elizabeth Droz and Leroy and Hazel Scheidelman. Their idea was to have a foundation whose specific goal was to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Through the years here at the Good News, Jesus’s message has not been one of word only, but has evolved into actions that support the core values espoused in the teachings of Jesus Christ. Jesus teaches to love one another through action. Our work today reflects that message.
To continue the work of Jesus and the vision of the Drozes and Scheidelmans, we launched in our silver jubilee year an appeal. Many individuals answered that appeal by making a donation of $199.20 or a gift of $19.92 a month for ten months which enrolls you in the 1992 Society. Your generosity no matter what the size of the gift, makes a difference.
