Endowment Fund

Living Saviour’s Endowment is a fund that was established by the congregation in which 5% of the market value of the fund is used each year to further our mission to “welcome people to Jesus Christ, equip them to grow in faith and send them to serve others.” It provides a way for members to give over and above the general fund and establishes a method to provide finances into the future for our mission. The funds are to be distributed for programs and activities both inside Living Saviour and for Outreach opportunities outside the church.

At the bottom of this page you can see a list of organizations and projects that have received assistance from the endowment over the past few years.

The Endowment Fund is administered and managed by the Endowment Fund Committee made up of 7 voting members of the congregation approved by the Congregation Council. 2017 Endowment Committee Members are Jennifer Huber – Chair, Jim Huddle – Vice Chair, Stephen Allen, Marty Jenkins, Rich Ballantine, Sally Ganz, Sarah Gist.

Talk to a member of the committee if you have a request for an organization you feel passionate about supporting or want to contribute to the fund. You can also click here to download the brochure or pick-up a brochure to the left of the sanctuary entrance.
