Executive Project Officer Fund

In order to get ISCAST to deliver on its mission, ISCAST has appointed Rev. Chris Mulherin to be our Executive Project Officer for one day a week (on average).

The challenge for 2015 is now before us. Thanks to generous donation from some of you, we have started the year on the front foot and we have a bit over $18K to go to reach our target! If only half of the ISCAST members paid $250, this sum would be covered comfortably.
