Can your church cover $428,000 per year?

March 16, 2018

President Trump’s 2019 budget request includes $1.5 trillion in cuts to programs that help people struggling with hunger and poverty. If churches and charities tried to fill that budget gap, they would have to raise more than $428,000 annually for 10 years.

Could your church make up the difference? 

These budget cuts are unacceptable. Call (800-826-3688) or email your senators and representative today. Tell your members of Congress to pass a budget that ends hunger.

While the president’s proposal is unlikely to become law, it is a starting point for budget negotiations with Congress. Last year, President Trump proposed even deeper cuts to programs that are helping to end hunger and poverty in the United States and around the world. Thanks to thousands of calls, letters, and emails from advocates like you, we expect funding for international development and key domestic safety-net programs to be largely protected in 2018.

We can stop these budget cuts again. Call (800-826-3688) or email your members of Congress today
