Endowment - Leaving a Legacy

What a Difference a Gift Makes!

In August 2005, we received a $100,000 gift from an anonymous donor who wanted to see specific improvements made to his church. First and foremost of these was a large and well-lit sign at our entrance. This project required that we first update the zoning of our property to allow for the size sign we wanted.

During the time we held this money, we invested it in a short-term bond fund and made some interest. Other big improvements purchased were parking lot lighting, a privacy fence, sanctuary air conditioning, and a kitchen renovation:
