Endowment Fund / Millennium Fund Giving Tree
Building Improvement Projects (replace heating/air conditioning systems, church repairs due to Hurricane Irene, etc.) at St.John’s United Methodist Church are funded by monies donated into the Endowment Fund for long term projects/investments or the Millennium Fund Giving Tree for short term designated projects (heating/air conditioning systems, church van, etc.).
The Endowment fund was established in 1992 by St. John’s United Methodist Church Charge Conference and is administered by the Endowment Fund Committee. Currently the Endowment Fund is monitored via the Finance Committee to evaluate investments; evaluate our investments; administer bequests; monitors the Millennium Fund; and considers other Endowment fund related matters.
Please prayerfully consider an Endowment fund donation to help the long term financial health of your church. This will go a long way to help replenish the Endowment Fund which contributed over $100,000 for the repairs due to Hurricane Irene.
