Permanent Endowment Fund

About the Permanent Endowment Fund

The Permanent Endowment Fund was established to provide members and friends the opportunity to make charitable gifts to Christ Church that will become a permanent endowment for financial support and a living memorial. These funds are to be used for special projects supporting the church related to the areas of: worship, fellowship, local outreach, education and facilities.

In January, 2016 the Permanent Endowment Fund Committee was formed, with the purpose of determining the criteria for awards made from the Permanent Endowment Fund.

This endowment is one of two endomwents for Christ Church. The second endowment is the Endowment for Children in Poverty in Third World Countries. For more details about the Endowment for Children in Poverty in Third World Countries, please contact the church office.
