The Endowment/Memorial Fund has been in place for over 10 years.  Over that time there have been over $32,000 awarded in grants.  Grants have been awarded for children’s ministry, Sonshine Childcare, Rainbow Preschool, music and worship ministry, and office equipment updates, just to name a few.

The Endowment/Memorial Fund is managed by the United Methodist Foundation and the Whitley County Community Foundation. Gifted money is never used for grants. Only a portion of the interest income is used.
If you are interested in more information about building this fund to have a larger impact on the outreach of our church, please review the Legacy Giving brochure.

Grants: Endowment Fund grants are for new, creative or outreach ministries that are not part of our normal annual budget.  Grants from the Bollinger fund are limited to music or missions. Grants from Memorial funds can be for any purpose.  These grants can help fulfill our mission of making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.  Note: At this time the grant process and application for 2017 is closed.
