Why give to CEF Durham?

Here are a few reasons, including the what you see in the collage of city kids above. The thousands of city kids and families, which we work with each year cannot support the mission that serves them. Most of these families do not contribute anything towards the weekly outreach and programs provided for their communities. Thus, CEF relies on God through Christians and local congregations for its financial well-being. If you believe that unchurched children and families need the Lord, then get involved. If you believe after 20 years of serving in Durham, reaching over 100,00 kids, and counseling over 8,000 individuals who made decisions to follow Christ, that CEF is worthy of your support, then give financially

How will your gift be used?

Your financial gifts to CEF Durham will be used year-round towards reaching and teaching city kids with Gospel-centered activities through wholistic outreach in under resourced communities of Durham. Bible club ministry is held in schools of Orange and Alamance Counties and discipleship of students through biblical training and practical service is conducted weekly in urban communities throughout the Durham area. Sports camps, clinics, academies, and tournament are held seasonally to enrich city kids' bodies, minds, and spirits. Evangelism, discipleship, and church involvement for unchurched city kids is our mission.

After school programs request
help with supplies and other needs to touch young lives
  We always have need of art supplies, homework resources and snacks for the kids attending after school tutoring, enrichment, and Good News Clubs from 4:00-6:00 each weekday. During these meetings CEF collaborates to offer academic and lifeskills activities plus a kid's Bible study. All  Good News Clubs and after school programs need snacks, drinks, art supplies, academic resources, and funds for field trips + service projects. These city kids have raised some money themselves, but have limited resources to supply their programs as well as help others.  Thanks for considering this request.

Contributions of supplies can be dropped off at the CEF office in the John O'Daniel Exchange building 801 Gilbert St. Durham. Financial contributions for these programs can be handled online or by mail to CEF Durham.
