Donna Wiegel Memorial Fund

Donna Wiegel served on Gathering staff from 1997 to 2018, during which time she held many roles, such as registrar, logistics manager and assistant director. After Donna passed away suddenly in 2018, the Gathering established the Donna Wiegel Memorial Fund, to provide financial assistance to individuals so they could experience the transformational ministry she served so faithfully for more than two decades.
