Endowment Team Mission Statement
The mission of the Endowment Fund Team is to encourage, receive, and administer gifts in a manner consistent with the loyalty and devotion to our Lord as expressed by the donors to enhance the outreach of Holy Trinity apart from the general operations of the congregation. The Endowment Fund is a perpetual gift that distributes only the income each year. Income distributions benefit:
    • Evangelism
    • Missions
    • Youth Ministry
    • Local Benevolence
    • Special Needs of the Church
The Endowment Team meets quarterly to review grant requests in February, May, August and November.
The next meeting is Monday, August 5. Please submit grant requests at least one week prior to the meeting.
