The Grace Trust, established in 1998, provides a general endowment fund which ensures a firm financial foundation for Grace Church and provides additional funds for programs, outreach and maintenance. The Trust provides that up to 5% of the average net value of the Trust's assets will be made available to the vestry each year to be used for these purposes. The Trust is not intended to supplement the annual operating budget of the Church for current expenses.
Recent projects funded in part by contributions from the trust fund include the expanded walkway, improvements from the parking lot into the church, and the newly completed playground facilities.
All gifts, large and small, are appreciated. A gift to the Grace Trust can be made by will or can be made during one's life to honor a special person, to give thanks for a special blessing, or to remember a loved one.
Information about why the Trust was created and how you can help may be found in the brochure "The Grace Trust, a Foundation For The Future" available in the front hall (outside of Grace House). The members of the trust committee would be pleased to discuss the work of the Trust or to answer any of your questions.
