Endowment funds for a congregation can be a blessing or a burden. At the Foundation, we work with church leaders to make endowment and permanent funds a blessing.
Endowments allow congregations to expand their ministry and witness, while empowering the individual Christian with an opportunity to demonstrate a personal stewardship statement. These donors want the church to wisely steward these gifts. In many cases, they want these gifts to serve ministries for years to come.
A good endowment process begins with a permanent fund policy. Our development team provides these resources to your leaders. We then guide you through the path of developing a policy that reflects the congregation and avoids pitfalls.
Once the policy is approved by your leadership and congregation, we assist in the promotion of the endowment.
