Many Foundation services are designed for the local church.
We offer investment management services for local church-owned funds. More than 140 local churches and several church-related organizations use our investment management services.
We consult with church groups to develop and promote endowment funds and planned giving programs. We assist in developing policies for accepting gifts and making prudent investment decisions. We make presentations, provide workshops, and preach on planned giving topics and lifelong stewardship. We have many additional resources that can assist local churches in their stewardship ministry.
In addition, the Foundation also offers a grants program. Since 1999, the Foundation has distributed nearly $800,000 to 200+ ministries across northern Illinois.
