Calvary’s Foundation has been organized to respect the desire of donors to have their contributions last over a long period of time; therefore, annual withdrawals are currently limited to a portion of the Foundation’s assets. The Calvary Foundation has been in existence since 2000, supporting the church and supplementing annual pledging.
The Foundation is a long term, regular contributor to Calvary’s annual programs by giving a consistent 4% contribution of its assets. This policy represents the standard for safe management of income producing assets.
During 2014, the Calvary Foundation contributed $790,000 to the mission and ministry of Calvary Presbyterian Church. The Foundation supports the annual operation of church programs and services, underpins a significant portion of benevolence giving to Mission partners, and also contributes to smaller capital expenditures. The Foundation assets totaled approximately $19,000,000 at the end of June 2015.
A planned legacy gift to the Calvary Foundation offers you the opportunity to make an enduring statement of faith through a charitable gift, which will build on and extend our church’s ministry for generations to come. Our congregation is an inclusive community of faith, committed to excellence in worship, music, education, and outreach. A legacy gift is one way to assure that this commitment remains strong into the future, ensuring the long-term security, viability, and vitality of Calvary Presbyterian Church. Such an act of stewardship is one way you can create the kind of legacy you would like to leave at Calvary.
You can support the future of our Church by including the Church in your estate plans through a bequest. For more information on how to make your legacy gift a reality, please complete the Information Request form below or contact any of the Calvary Foundation trustees:
