Every donation helps The Genesis 1:29 Project in our mission of “Bringing the message of health to Chicago congregations.” Whether you are able to give $5 or $1,000 or more, rest assured we will be very grateful for your generosity.

It requires about $7500 to run one of our four class series – this includes the class itself, the three months of coaching, and the assistance in starting a congregational health program. What we do is powerful. People can get off medications, reverse disease in many cases, reduce the weight they carry, and live more fulfilling lives. The Genesis 1:29 Project preaches that there is great hope. People often only need the knowledge and the skills to make big advances in their health.

While we are increasing our efforts in the area of grant funding, we continue to rely upon the generosity of people like you to fund our mission. There are also three categories of givers who help us a great deal with specific pieces of our program. 

The Foodie – this $250 donation will purchase the food required for a four class series

The Professor – this $600 donation will cover the costs required for TWO people to have lifestyle coaches for three months

The Mayor – this $1000 donation covers the cost of materials and time required for an entire series of classes

Again, every little bit helps a small nonprofit like The Genesis 1:29 Project. Remember too that your contribution is fully deductible as allowed by law. For those who use you might also consider making The Genesis 1:29 Project the recipient of your giving. It is easy an quick to do. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. 

In deep gratitude of your support,

Rev. Russell Elleven, DMin, CWP
Executive Director
