The Endowment Board is delighted to make two announcements: grants have been awarded for the 2020 endowment funds; and 2021 endowment funds are now available!
2020 Endowment Funds
Thanks to the generosity of our wonderful Legacy Society (composed of any donor to the St. Paul’s Endowment), the following grants were awarded at the end of 2020:
- Funds for the purchase of a new outdoor climbing structure for our most precious asset: the children of St. Paul’s. This climbing structure was a much-needed replacement and will bring joy to our Kid’s Club and Preschool participants as they play outdoors. Check it out if you have a chance, it’s pretty awesome!
- Funds to begin the installation of professional landscape lighting in our beautiful courtyard. Outdoor space is more important than ever for all of us! We hope to make our courtyard even more useful and safe with upgraded and attractive lighting. We hope you are all looking forward to using this space as soon as we are able to get back to gathering.
- Funds for those working to better our community. A grant was made to the Johnson Service Corp which has served many of our young adults. Specifically, with so much attention on the need to recognize mental health in our community, JSC is undertaking to train its members to recognize and appropriately respond to mental health issues in the populations they serve. We are delighted to help fund this project as an extension of St. Paul’s outreach efforts.
