St. Paul’s Endowment
Endowment Board Announces Availability of Funds: Deadline Extended
Some good news for 2020! The St. Paul’s Endowment Board is delighted to announce that funds are available this year to further St. Paul’s efforts to know Christ and make Christ known in the world. If you have a great idea for using the 2020 endowment funds for a special project at St. Paul’s or in our community, the Endowment Board would love to hear from you. Please CLICK HERE for the Grant Request Form which gives further details about how the funds can be used and what amounts are available. The forms are due by November 30, 2020. Contact Katie Bricio (email@example.com) if you have any questions.
The St. Paul’s Endowment was created in 2008 to provide a reliable source of income to the parish for generations to come. Income from the endowment fund is helping St. Paul’s more completely fulfill its mission. Distributions from the fund are not used for typical operating expenses, but instead are used for purposes such as:
- outreach ministries and grants,
- seed money for new ministries and special one-time projects, and
- purposes that are specifically designated by donors.
Donors interested in a particular ministry or need at St. Paul’s may designate their gift for that purpose. However, there is a minimum amount set for designated gifts, and the vestry must approve the designated gift for the named purpose. Undesignated gifts to the endowment allow the church to address future needs as they arise without restrictions.
Commitments to the endowment can take many forms, including a monetary gift, a bequest in a will, designation of the endowment as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy, and instruments such as charitable remainder trusts.
To assist those wishing to make a commitment to the endowment, the Endowment Board has developed a Model Donor Agreement. Governing documents and the Board’s policies are available upon request.
The Legacy Society includes any parishioner who has made a gift to the endowment, either actualized or planned for the future (and memorialized in a signed Donor Agreement). You can find more information in the Legacy Society Brochure.
