Consider helping the Episcopal Church in Navajoland as you prepare for your end-of-the-year donations.

Through the efforts of the Episcopal Church Development Office, tax-deductible donations can be made to the building of hogans in Navajoland 

Donations can be made here

“Help the Navajo build sturdily-modern, yet traditional, structures that serve as a locus of Navajoland’s unique and beautiful Episcopal ministry,” explained Elizabeth Lowell, Director of Development. “The great success of The Episcopal Church’s inaugural participation in #GivingTuesday means that the Navajoland Area Mission will be able to complete one ceremonial and educational hogan - and they have part of the funding to start another.”

The Navajoland Area Mission is 26,000 square miles, spreading over Arizona, New Mexico and Utah.  Hogans, a traditional Navajoland dwelling, cost $40,000 to build and are used for traditional ceremonies as well as educational purposes.

Donations for hogans will be accepted through June 2015.
