St. John’s Episcopal Church Foundation, Inc.’s mission and purpose is to partner with St. John’s Episcopal Church to help fulfill its mission and realize its vision. The Foundation can be most successful in achieving its mission and purpose if the Board and the parish work together to grow the endowment of the Foundation. Continued growth in the endowment leads to more dollars for grants each year. To help with this growth, the Board educates the parish about the importance of planned giving, encourages members to make planned gifts, manages endowment funds, reports progress regularly to the Vestry and congregation of the parish, and makes annual grants in support of the mission and ministry of the church.
