Named Endowments


With a minimum gift, the Foundation will establish an endowment in your name or your family's name.  An annual percentage, along with your name and instructions for the use of the endowment, will be sent to the church or ministry that you direct!

What a wonderful way to honor a family or remember important people in your life, while assisting the church or ministry of your choice.

We manage over 100 Named Endowments that support Camping, Ministerial Student Aid, Pensions and more.  To apply for a named endowment simply file out the Named Endowment Application Form and return to the Foundation Office.
