Good morning with great news. We are just $42 shy of reaching our goal of eliminating the 2017 back taxes! However, there are old bills from the City of Jackson such as housing inspections so any excess fundraised will go towards those expenses. Please continue to support Grace Haven with your donation and or sharing the campaign with encouraging words. Grace Haven is coming back and we are heading in the right direction. Thank you and have a marvelous day!

Great afternoon Grace Haven supporters. I have raised $3,899. I withdrew $3,470.33 this afternoon and paid the 2013, 2014, and 2016 taxes in which prevented Jackson County from repossessing Grace Haven on April 1st of 2019. We all should be very proud for the continued success of my campaign. Your donation was put to good use and it puts me a step closer to starting the mission for Grace Haven. I was a bit emotional when I made the payment today. As of now, the current fundraiser to pay the 2017 taxes is currently at $426. I would love to raise the goal of $1659 as soon as possible to rid of all taxes so I can move on with the mission. If you prefer, you can mail donations to Grace Haven Center P.O. Box 655 Jackson, MI 49204. You can make checks payable to Grace Haven Center. In the meanwhile, I am currently deciding on which business model that will best serve the community. Once the decision has been made, I can finish writing the business plan with my mentors and we can begin writing grants to rehabilitate Grace Haven. Please support me if you can and for those who haven’t donated, I am asking if you will donate today. Thank you again everyone and I will personally thank each one of you shortly. That is all for now. Next update is when I decide on the business model.

Good morning Grace Haven supporters. I have raised $3574 which surpasses the goal of $3471. Hooray! We all should be smiling and filled with joy because I sure am! The goal was met in less than three weeks! Great job everyone for your quick efforts and sacrifice! Interesting, 3574 is my birthdate so I definitely won’t forget about this moment. Well, more donations were expected to come in so I started a new campaign to get a head start on that goal. If you were intending to donate you can still do so to help me get a head start on getting Grace Haven out of foreclosure for good raising funds to pay the 2017 taxes. I realize there are so many social media pages for Grace Haven but moving forward, I will post updates on this gofundme page monthly. This page will be the go to for the latest information on the Grace Haven project. I will post an update and picture of paying the $3471 to the Jackson County Treasuer soon! Let us stay on top of this everyone. We can slow down from 90mph to 71 mph now. Donate to the next campaign and share share share my campaign! Have a blessed day!
