Join the Founders Circle

The Founders Circle began in 2013 to honor the legacy of Faith in Place’s founder and longtime Executive Director, Rev. Dr. Clare Butterfield, as she transitioned to a new role in important philanthropic work. Contributions made to the Founders Circle go toward the unrestricted operating funds of Faith in Place, to provide a stable future and build a stronger foundation for expanding our programs.
