Compass Rose to Raise $10M

From The Living Church-

The Compass Rose Society will soon launch a campaign to raise a $10 million endowment to fund its annual commitment to the work of the Anglican Consultative Council. The Rt. Rev. C. Andrew Doyle, Bishop of Texas and president of the society, announced the plan during the group’s annual meeting on Oct. 27-28 in London.

“This Communion is alive,” said the Most Rev. Josiah Idowu-Fearon, recently appointed secretary general of the Anglican Communion. Idowu-Fearon said he was encouraged by his early explorations of the Communion, especially the prospect of adding several new provinces and the favorable response to Archbishop Justin Welby’s call for a Primates’ Meeting in January.

Michael Hart, a financial consultant and vice chairman of the Communion’s finance and administration committee, said that Compass Rose Society donations provided 13 percent of the charity’s unrestricted income in 2014.
