Trust Fund for Endowments
Funding for Church Needs Since 1972
The Trust Fund for Endowments was established in 1972 to provide financial stability and funding for special church needs, maintenance, and improvements. The corpus cannot be expended without approval of the church membership, but disbursement of interest and dividends earned during the previous year may be approved by the Trust Fund board for special projects. Gifts accepted for the Trust Fund include cash, real property, memorials, securities, gifts in trust, gifts of life insurance, and property of any kind.
The Trust Fund has made the following major projects possible:
- Purchase of air conditioners
- Sewer line installation
- Roof repair
- Fire damage repair
- Computer systems
- Duplicating equipment
- Furnace replacement
- New church construction
