village church endowment trust
The Endowment Trust enriches the mission and ministries of Village Church, ensuring its extraordinary service now and toward God’s promised day.
The Village Presbyterian Church Endowment Trust is a non-profit, charitable foundation that enriches the church’s mission and ministries, funds new initiatives and leaves a legacy for future generations. It raises and manages funds to provide resources for the future and also supplements the Church’s annual budget. The Endowment Trust has been established by the Session and is managed by a separate board of directors.
The Endowment Trust has a general endowment fund and 11 Legacy Funds. The board of the Endowment Trust invests these funds and carefully oversees the investment management so that your charitable gift continues to grow over time and provide for extraordinary mission today, tomorrow and always.
Each year, 5 percent of a 5 year rolling average is granted from each of the following Legacy Funds: Adult, Children, Youth & Family, Facilities, First Decision, Food Pantry, For the Least of These, Mission, Seminars, Worship & Music and Youth Mission Trip Scholarships.
The Meneilly Society (named for our founding pastor) recognizes an individual or couple who have named Village Presbyterian Church Endowment Trust as a beneficiary in their will, trust, life insurance policy or through another estate-related gift plan. These generous gifts ensure a bright future for our Church. If you have or wish to include Village Church in your estate plan, please contact Bob Sperry.
Grants from the Endowment Trust have benefitted these recipients among many others. Watch to learn more.
