Faith-Based Research: Using Land for the Common Good
Inspired by our Member investors, the Leviticus Fund pioneered a study to identify examples and best practices for how religious communities could use planning and partnerships to repurpose their buildings for mission-driven mixed-use development, adaptive reuse, and land conversation. Below are our findings from this exploration. We encourage our investors and their peers to read our study and to consider the examples we highlight, and to reach out to us if interested in replicating them on their own properties.
We expect to continue our information-gathering on this topic, and plan to share any findings we have in the hope they offer faith-based organizations opportunities to discover new expressions of their mission and ministry within their land and buildings.
We offer a special word of thanks to the Westchester Community Foundation for encouraging this work and for providing financial support to carry out our research.
