Endowment Information

Church of Our Savior has two Endowment Funds. The first, a general Endowment Fund is composed of financial gifts given through the years and invested through a combination of local community and churchwide sources. Interest from the income of the investments is used to supplement the parish operating budget. The second is the Scholarship Fund. Interest from this endowment is used to assist any Church of Our Savior member attending an institution of higher education. The following is a list of ways you can make a gift to one or both of these funds:

  • Gifts of Stocks and Bonds
    A gift of your securities, including your stocks or bonds, is an easy way for you to make a gift. By making a gift of your appreciated securities, you can avoid paying capital gains tax that would otherwise be due if you sold these assets.
  • Gifts of Real Estate
    A gift of your real property (such as your home, vacation property, vacant land, farmland or ranch or commercial property) can make a great gift. If you own appreciated real property, you can avoid paying capital gains tax by making a gift to us.
  • Gifts of Retirement Assets
    A gift of your retirement assets, such as a gift from your IRA, 401k, 403b, pension or other tax deferred plan, is an excellent way to make a gift. By making a gift of your retirement assets, you will help further our work.
  • Gifts of Cash
    A gift of cash is a simple and easy way for you to make a gift. You will receive a charitable tax deduction that will provide you with savings on this year’s tax return.
  • Gift of Insurance
    A gift of your life insurance policy is an excellent way to make a gift to us. If your life insurance policy is no longer needed or will no longer benefit your survivors consider making a gift and help further our mission.
