MHF Membership Campaign 2016-17
September marks the beginning of a new fiscal year for Mennonite Healthcare Fellowship. It also marks the start of the new Membership Campaign. September 2016 also marks the beginning of MHF’s new Missional Budget Plan. This includes the consolidation of the various legacy funds into one fund focused on the total mission of Mennonite Healthcare Fellowship. The Missional Budget Plan also includes a funding model that focuses on overall contributions joyfully given to support the mission rather than “dues” owed to obtain personal privileges. Please give generously using the new Online Contributions Form or visit the Member Resources Page for other ways to give.
