CHVB Launches $2,000,000 Capital Campaign

Dear Friends and Supporters:
Each day, we honor and celebrate the genesis of our rich heritage in which European American and African American Baptist joined together to establish a ministry which provided residential care for underserved African American  children. These children found themselves in circumstances that rendered them homeless and or parentless. We praise God for those founders and their tenacity of faith, to persevere in the midst of obstacles to see their vision become reality in the tangible asset of the Children’s Home of Virginia Baptist, Inc., affectionately referred to as “ The Legacy of Love.”

CHVB appreciates the past support of the Virginia Baptist State Association, and the current support of the Virginia Baptist State Convention (VBSC), additionally; CHVB appreciates the support of Baptist General Convention (BGC), who is the main stakeholders of this prime piece of real estate in the Commonwealth of Virginia totaling 250 plus acres of land.

 Our Goal:  There is a $2,000,000 mortgage on the Ritchie Multipurpose Building. The monthly payment is $12,000. This payment, along with escalating utility cost, makes it a challenge for CHVB to engage in program development and expand service delivery.  The CHVB Needs Assessment revealed that CHVB “cannot do this alone.” According to the study, CHVB will need public support in order to grow and provide the excellent services that the community needs and deserves. The retirement of the mortgage will assure that CHVB will be able to engage in needed program development, service delivery and community enhancement activities.

Please provide your tax deductible donation at your earliest convenience, using “Go Fund Me”. Each donation will be deposited in a special bank account that has been established for this project only. The contributor’s name will be posted on the CHVB website as donations are received. The corresponding total amount raised will be posted weekly.

Please “Do not grow weary in well doing…” your support is needed, necessary and vital to the success of this Campaign and to the future of CHVB. Please help us to keep this vision alive.  Thank you for your support.

Advancing the Kingdom,

Rev. Gregory L. Spurlock, Chairman
CHVB Board Trustee
