The Eden Endowment Fund was established in 1994 to support projects and programs that enliven the mission of Eden Church. Contributions to the Endowment Fund are added to the principal, which cannot be spent – it can only be used to produce interest income. Three specialized funds make up the Eden Endowment Fund. These are the General Fund, a Visiting Pastor Fund, and a Capital Improvement Fund. As these three funds generate income, the Endowment Committee can choose to continue investing that income or can approve a requested expenditure as defined the Eden Endowment By-Laws.
The Eden Endowment Committee is composed of ten members consisting of Eden’s Senior Pastor and nine members of Eden’s congregation who are appointed and approved by Eden Church Council. The Endowment Committee is available to Eden Members who may be considering a special bequest to the church. Please contact the church office for further details.
