Christ Lutheran Endowment Fund – A Celebration of LIFE!
Investing in the work of Christ’s Church Now and in the Future
The Christ Lutheran Endowment Fund was established in 1998 to support the work and mission of Christ Lutheran in and beyond our community. The fund is called an “enduring” fund because only the interest which the fund accumulates is disbursed; your gift to the fund literally “endures” and keeps giving for years to come. Although endowment funds have historically been viewed within the context of “estate giving”, think of this fund as an opportunity to ALSO celebrate life. Contributions can be made to celebrate a birth, baptism, first communion, confirmation, graduation, wedding, and ________________________ (you fill in the blank)
The Endowment Fund principal is invested in the Mission Fund of the ELCA. Over the years the interest from this fund has supported:
- The Fredericksburg Food Bank
- Alzheimer’s Association
- Habitat for Humanity
- United Lutheran Appeal
- Our sister congregation in Papa New Guinea
- Christeens (National Youth Gatherings)
- Seminarian Support
- Capital Improvements
- CLC Scholarship
- Thurman Brisben Homeless Shelter
- Virginia Synod Mission Development
- Micah Ministries
Keep your congregation in mind as you think about your wills, estate gifts, etc. This is a great way your gift can keep on giving. Confidential help is available from the Synod’s Mission Office for Planned Giving (firstname.lastname@example.org) or speak to Pastor Carbaugh who can point you in the right direction.
