The purpose of the Mission Endowment Fund is to provide for a perpetual fund with only earnings to be distributed to support mission work at home and around the world, above and beyond the programs supported through regular offerings.
The fund is governed by a Mission Endowment Fund Committee of five members responsible to publicize and educate members of the church and others of its existence and purpose; to prudently invest the principal; and to receive requests for the use of the Mission Endowment Fund earnings and recommend expenditure to the church council.
How Can I Support This Fund?
Gifts of money or other value may be given through bequests in wills, assignment of life insurance, trusts and transfer of property including cash, securities and real estate.
