Genesis Home starts drive

By Todd Cohen

DURHAM, N.C. — Genesis Home, a Durham nonprofit that provides shelter and support for homeless families, including child-care for their children and other community youngsters, is getting a boost from Stewards Fund in Raleigh.

The $30 million-asset foundation — which in 2000 received one-third of the assets through the dissolution of the Kathleen Price Bryan Family Fund in Greensboro — has agreed to match up to $20,000 from new donors and those giving more than they have in the past to Genesis Home’s annual fund drive.

In addition to the $40,000 it raised last year, Genesis Home aims this year to raise another $20,000 to match the $20,000 challenge.

This year’s drive, which began April 1 and runs through June, is targeting private individuals and corporations.
