The Mission of Calvary Episcopal Church Foundation
The Calvary Episcopal Church Foundation was created to serve as a supportive organization for the ministries and community of Calvary Episcopal Church. It provides a means by which parishioners and other interested parties can help meet needs not met by the operating budget alone, and provide extra support to the many outreach projects that Calvary undertakes. In addition, the Foundation provides a conduit through which special grants to support Calvary’s ministries may be applied for, as well as matching employer gifts not available to the church itself.
The reasons people give to the Foundation vary and are often uniquely personal, but a common thread is a love for the community of Christ that has been experienced at Calvary. Some examples include:
“Planning to make a gift...is not reserved for the wealthy. Remember, no gift is too small in the eyes of God.”
