Sustaining Congregations

Sustaining congregations help to make the great work of MNIPL possible. We want to build a network of resources and support for congregations to be inspired by and to connect with what others are doing in their faith communities. Through yearly financial contributions of $500-$5,000, sustaining congregations ensure our Be the Spark, Climate Conversations, and Youth Be the Spark programs will empower leaders and strengthen the interfaith climate movement statewide. We would love to have your support in addition to the burgeoning group of sustaining congregations already taking action.
