THANK YOU, thank you, thank you!!!

Your generous support has now exceeded our cost estimate for the shingles (although prices increase each day!). Continuing donations will help pay for the total project cost.
Thank you again for helping us exceed our first goal.

Rough estimate of total cost for cedar shingles is $20,000 to $25,000

Received to date: $42,916

AND two additional donors have pledged $15,000!!!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROSITY… it is so appreciated.

You can donate either by check (to St. George’s Church “for Roofs” and mailed to

St. George’s Church, P.O. Box 849, Cordova, AK 99574); or, online here using Paypal.

Bundles of #1 Blue Label 16 inch shingles

This bundle of shingles has your name on it!

We need 120 bundles to replace St. George’s roof.

Your donation of $200 or more, either individually or with other friends as a group, will be acknowledged on a plaque inside the church. You will also receive a 1923 publication, Copper Tints, A Book of Cordova Sketches. This charming booklet has a series of short vignettes written by Katherine Wilson, an early reporter for the Cordova Times, and illustrations are by Rev. Eustace Ziegler, who was in charge of the Episcopal Mission in Cordova from 1909-1924.

ALL donations, of any amount, are welcomed!

$10, $25, $50, whatever amount you can afford.

We will be very grateful for your support.
