LECUSA /ECL Project Appeal
Posted July 2020

LECUSA’s Projects

As we welcome you to the official website of the Liberian Episcopal Community in the United States of America, LECUSA, we would like for you to be aware of projects that we have undertaken in the past and others that we are currently co-sponsoring in support of our home diocese of Liberia.

Since its founding, LECUSA has done her best to fulfill its mission of giving back to the Episcopal Diocese of Liberia in many ways including contributing to educational institutions through chair projects; assisting with Ebola relief to the tune of $5,000; extending support to the clergy in Liberia and their families for the past 10 years; as well as shipment of supplies and resources to the diocese.

CURRENT SPECIAL PROJECTS
Currently, LECUSA is in a joint venture of collaboration with the Episcopal Church of Liberia (ECL), to undertake projects that will fulfill the Strategic Sustainability Plan that was initiated by the diocese last year. The first step is to undertake series of feasibility studies as the precondition for grants that we are exploring for each of the projects. These current projects are meant to put our home diocese on a path to self-sustainability since overseas support to the diocese will discontinue in a few years.

The following is the list of the projects for which LECUSA and ECL are currently collaborating to undertake.
*LIST OF PROJECTS for ECL’s Sustainability

  • Completion of the ECW Diocesan Conference Center in Caldwell
  • Agricultural Business Project on Cuttington Land

(This project will utilize a portion of Cuttington University’s 1,500 acres and will be expanded to other church agricultural lands throughout the country). Proceeds will benefit both the diocese and Cuttington University.

  • Cemetery project on Robertfield Highway (Boys Town area) (on 50 acres)
  • Real Estates projects: (refurbishing existing facilities and construction of new ones including hotels, etc.)
  • Diocesan National State of the Art Digital Archive to be headquartered at Cuttington University with a center in Monrovia

We welcome the support of individuals, families, institutions or groups for the achievement of our goals to make the Episcopal Diocese of Liberia self-sustaining.

Thanks very kindly for your support-
Fr. Dee Wellington Bright
(National President)

Below is our appeal statement.


Special Appeal
In the interest of our Home Diocese/ ECL

In light of LECUSA’s joint venture of collaboration with ECL (The Episcopal Church of Liberia), to undertake projects that will fulfill the *Strategic Sustainability Plan of the diocese, we are making the following appeal for assistance to initiate the projects. The first step in the process is to undertake a series of feasibility studies as the precondition for grants that we are exploring for each of the projects.

The cost for the feasibility study for the first project, the ECW Diocesan Conference Center is $3,000. That cost has recently been underwritten by the ECW and LECUSA at $1,500 each. That process is about to resume.
The next is the feasibility study for the agricultural project at Cuttington. The cost of that feasibility study is estimated at $23,000 of which ECL Board of Trustees has pledged 50% with the proviso that LECUSA will raise the balance 50%. These projects are all meant to put our home diocese, ECL, on a path to self-sustainability.

Accordingly, this comes as a general appeal for contributions towards LECUSA’s portion of the cost of the feasibility study of the agricultural project which is 50% of the $23,000 (or $11,500). LECUSA is seeking to raise its $11,500 through voluntary contributions.
In order to help us meet this goal, we are appealing to the following individuals and groups for voluntary generous contributions.

  • LECUSA’s Officers and Executive members
  • LECUSA’s Chapters and Chapter members
  • LECUSA’s Lay members and clergy members
  • LECUSA’s Families, Friends and Associates
  • The Cuttington University Alumni Association (CUAAA)

Contributions can be made on LECUSA’s website or be mailed to Mr. David Hanson at 32 Knoll Drive; Blackwood, NJ 08012     (Tel: 856-308-5735)
We need to come up with our portion before end of August 2020.
It is my prayer that you will come through for us as you have always done in a prompt and generous manner. Remember that nothing done for God is ever wasted!

Thanks a Million in advance-
~Fr. Dee Wellington Bright, National Chairman
