The Covenant Presbyterian Foundation is organized for the sole purpose of supporting the mission of Covenant Presbyterian Church. Covenant established the foundation in 1998 with the generous bequest of $1 million from longtime church members. Since then, members have continued to make commitments to benefit generations to come.
Reasons to Donate to the Foundation
Donating to the foundation enables you to leave a legacy lasting beyond your lifetime to further the Kingdom, to fund our missions and to spread the gospel to future generations. By leaving a bequest to the foundation, you guarantee that your efforts to support Covenant’s ministries will continue, even after you’ve passed on.
How the Foundation Works
The foundation accepts donations of various forms and uses the funds generated to invest in smart opportunities to provide income for present and future needs. An elected group of trustees handles all bequests. The main focus of the trustees is to ensure the sustainability of the foundation’s financial future. They are elected for three-year terms, after which they may retire or opt for re-election. The initial principal that donors give is never spent, only invested. This way, the foundation can guarantee its continued mission without financial worry. Financial gains on investments are calculated each year and transferred to missions and ministries as requested by Session. These purposes are given priority for foundation earnings. In this way, we strive to ensure that every dollar raised from investments in the church goes toward the core mission of the church first.
How to Donate
Covenant wants to have donors’ full confidence throughout the process of planning their bequests, and therefore asks that potential donors speak with a church representative if they wish to donate to the foundation. To learn more about the process or to get started, please contact Covenant Administrator Duane Dube at firstname.lastname@example.org.
