In order for Jubilee to happen in New Haven, we need support from people like you. Such an expansive vision of transformation--of Jubilee--requires financial backing. This can come in a diverse range of ways, whether it's giving $10 a month or giving $500--or $5,000--one-time or loaning $50,000 to the Jubilee Loan Fund. Such an initiative will require the cumulative efforts of hundreds of people. We invite you to join us in this way.
You can also send physical checks made out to Borden Ministries with the subject line, "Jubilee Project," to our main address:
95 Division Street
New Haven, CT 06511
Borden Ministries is a registered 501(c)3 organization. All donations are tax-deductible.
In the Old Testament, God provided a way for people to meet the basic needs of those on the margins. On top of regular gifts to the house of God, people were to leave the edges of the field for those in need. In a sense, giving monthly is a way to leave the edges of the field. We invite you to join us in this way.
One of the biggest financial obstacles for transformative housing work is financing. Investors who buy homes in our neighborhood can often buy cash for properties before homeowners or non-profits can do anything. In New York, a church denomination provided a no-interest loan that facilitated the rapid growth of the Nehemiah Homes project. In this project, a group of historically Black churches led an initiative to construct over 2,000 homes to sell affordably to local residents. We are inviting supporters to partner with us in this way: to provide low-interest loans that catalyze community development. We can provide flexible options with regard to the precise interest rate and length of the loan term. Please contact us if you are interested in contributing to the Jubilee Loan Fund.
