Sustaining Congregations

MNIPL works in partnership with faith communities to build transformative power and bring the lights of people’s unique gifts to addressing the climate crisis.

Sustaining Congregations help to make the inspiring, impactful work of the MNIPL network possible.

Through yearly financial contributions of $500-$5,000, Sustaining Congregations ensure that 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.

Become a Sustaining Congregation!

To make a gift, or with questions: Contact Liz Loeb, MNIPL Associate Director at or (646) 621-7931.
