Stimulus Jubilee

What is a Stimulus Jublilee? It is a concrete, practical way we at CWOW stand with those whose very livelihood is threatened by the greatest economic and health crisis of our generation.

By drawing from our stimulus checks and our own financial reserves, we can collectively share a little taste of Jesus’ Jubilee “good news to the poor” (Luke 4).

At a time of great uncertainty, when it would be easy to fall into fear, we have risen to the occasion through our generous expression of justice. We didn’t just set a new Giving Week record–we almost doubled it!

Thanks for saying yes to the Upside Down Kingdom in this most practical of ways.

Together we gave a total of $82,280 to over 30 different organizations, building lasting spiritual friendship through unrighteous wealth (Lk 16:9). Over $60,ooo went to our four highlighted organizations, but check out all of the many places that we also gave to below.

Christmastide Giving Week

This Christmastide, as the pandemic dragged on and canceled our best-laid plans, it was easy to fall into fatigue and lose hope. That’s why we were grateful for the wise men who gave gifts to a poor, colonized family because they saw that God was restoring the entire world through their new baby.

Following their example, we brought as gifts our stimulus checks and our own financial reserves to stand in solidarity with those whose very livelihood is threatened by the greatest economic and health crisis of our generation.

Together we gave exactly $50k to 36 different organizations listed below. Additionally, our CWOW Missions Fund has matched with a $10k grant divided between our five highlighted organizations. This Christmas we heard Mary say that God is “lifting up the lowly and filling the hungry with good things” through her baby boy. We are privileged to participate, even in a small way, in what God is doing!

Highlighted Organizations:

Centro Legal de la Raza, Oakland

Achieve Academy, Oakland

Takataka Plastics, Uganda

The GreenHouse, Sacramento
