Evangelical Council for
Church Designated Funds
Church Designated Fund
allows the church (or other Christian Ministry) to set up a fund to
which either the church or its donors may make direct
contributions. This is helpful to your donors who may wish to make
an anonymous gift, and helpful to churches not equipped to accept gifts
of appreciated assets.Donations
may be in the form of cash or appreciated assets (typically stocks,
bonds, mutual funds, or real estate).The church then controls the distributions from this fund, within
the parameters which they have already specified in the agreement
may be very general (e.g. “to fund church ministry”) or very
specific (e.g. “to fund my church’s building program”).
your Church Designated Fund
is set up, the Foundation will handle the administration, which includes
monthly statements of the activity in the account.We will work with you to establish an investment strategy that is
consistent with your church’s needs and preferred investment style.
believe that this program will prove to be particularly useful and
beneficial, and we look forward to the opportunity to serve churches and
other Christian ministries in this manner.
