The Endowment Fund is an educational fund to assist those perusing faith formation opportunities. This governmental body is made up of 5 elected board members each serving 5-year terms. Their role is to encourage, receive and administer monetary gifts, including managing an endowment education fund in accordance to grantors’ wishes and congregation policies, while maintaining loyalty and devotion to the Lord.
The Board distributes portions of the endowment fund in the form of grants given to young adults for college tuition, to children for camp, Vacation Bible School and provides financial help to youth attending national ELCA and Nebraska Synod mission programs.
The Endowment Board’s role includes encouraging member donations, so the fund can continue to provide educational gifts to children and young adults in need.
