Memorials Endowment Grant guidelines 

2018 M&E Grant Application

The Memorials and Endowments Team manages designated gifts to the church as well as managing the church’s endowment held by New Covenant Funds and JP Morgan. The church created the endowment fund in 1998 and it reached its initial principal balance of $100,000 in 2007. The fund now uses the growth in principal to support an annual grant process.

The purpose of an M&E grant is to provide resources to support faith-based initiatives. These initiatives must align with the overall purpose of the Endowment Fund, which is to provide opportunities for members to support the benevolent, educational, and mission work of the whole church. Specifically, the church desires to enlarge the scope of the congregation’s work and influence by:

  • initiating, supporting, and maintaining worthy community projects;
  • participating more fully in the many avenues for service to God and to humankind offered by our denomination, including religious fellowship, worship and education;
  • expanding its witness to Jesus Christ; and
  • engaging in programs designed to attend to the needs and wants of the elderly, sick, poor, young, bereaved, and physically or mentally handicapped.

The grants are one-time, non-recurring gifts and are not intended to replace existing budgets or support ongoing projects. Any CPC member may apply.
