When we first decided to launch our Cathedral for the Future comprehensive campaign, it was with one audacious goal: to renew Washington National Cathedral to help heal the world.

It has been nearly five years, and the outpouring of support to strengthen this building and infrastructure, to elevate our mission and to expand our impact is nothing short of remarkable.

Thanks to the support of more than 46,000 individual donors, we have reached our ambitious $150 million comprehensive goal. Much of this support came from broad-based, annual gifts that allowed us to weather the COVID pandemic, make significant progress on key capital projects, and expand our digital footprint.

Even with this great success, we are not finished. One year remains in the Cathedral for the Future campaign and we are close to fully funding three priority capital projects: Earthquake Repairs, Organ Renovation, and Upgrades to the Nave Audio and Broadcast System.

Each of these projects is vital to the future of the Cathedral, and an important stepping stone to fully realize the vision of the Cathedral for the Future campaign.

Thanks to a generous match from the Lilly Endowment, all gifts to the earthquake will be doubled until November 1, 2024.

At the beginning of the Cathedral for the Future comprehensive campaign, we set an ambitious funding goal to place the Cathedral on a firm foundation for the next 100 years of ministry.

The finish line is now in sight. As we look towards the successful conclusion to this campaign, we hope you will help ensure we have all that is needed to truly be a cathedral for the future.
