Endowment

 The VPC Endowment Fund was created in 1997 through the generosity of Bill and Jean Lane along with contributions made by every church member. From 2016-2018 the Goodman-Morris Legacy Endowment Campaign raised $1 million to contribute to the endowment fund in honor of Mark and Cheryl Goodman-Morris celebrating nearly 30 years of loving service to Valley Presbyterian Church and the legacy they leave behind. From an original $500,000 the endowment has grown over the years to over $2 million dollars.

Our endowment earns income which is re-invested to help fund the annual operating budget and support church programs. Moreover, church endowments declare to the present and future generations the importance of our faith and trust in God, and provide lasting witness well after each of us are gone, and much needed financial resources for those who come after us.  

It is a permanent fund established to support our future growth and charitable activities. The principal of the fund remains in perpetuity, and income is reinvested to allow the endowment to grow. 4.75 % of the value of the fund, averaged over three years, is distributed each year to the VPC operating budget to support Mission, Spiritual Exploration, Children’s Education, Community Building, and Arts and Music programs.

Please contact the Endowment Chair, Rian Jorgensen, for further information and assistance at rian.jorgensen@gmail.com.

Bequests

People who are unable to make a major donation during their lifetime may be able to make one through a bequest naming VPC to receive a gift through your will or trust. Bequests allow individuals to support VPC while at the same time preserving assets needed to cover lifetime living expenses.

Your attorney can assist in drafting language for your will that ensures your bequest will be used for the purpose you intend.
