About the Fund
Earnings from Holy Trinity’s Mission Endowment Fund will extend the congregation’s commitment to connect and serve with joy. Every year, your gift will create funds that allow the congregation to find new and deeper ways to be in mission. Because only the fund’s earnings are used, your gift keeps extending our mission forever.
Any gift, large or small, makes a difference! Gifts to the Mission Endowment Fund are a meaningful way to concretize your commitment to the congregation’s mission or to honor or memorialize someone important to you.
History of the Fund
Holy Trinity’s Mission Endowment Fund was established in 1977 as a result of the bequests of a number of long-time Holy Trinity members.
These legacy gifts assured Holy Trinity’s survival during a difficult period providing us today with a dynamic faith community that enriches us and the lives of others in so many ways.
The Holy Trinity Mission Endowment Fund Committee is currently at work to build the fund, to carefully monitor the investment and to make recommendations to the Church Council for the annual distribution of a portion of the income.
