What is the Trust Fund?

 

The Trust Fund at St. John Evangelical Lutheran Church was established in 1984 with a generous bequest from longtime member Louise Anderson.  The Trust Fund is designed to preserve the principal (your gifts), with a portion of the earnings used to fulfill our mission (giving aid to those in need).  Since 1985, under the guidance of the Trust Fund Committee, the Trust Fund has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to the needs of the church, our local community, and missions throughout the United States and the world.

“EVERY TREE IS KNOWN BY THE FRUIT IT BEARS”     ~Luke 6:44

Fund Designations

The GENERAL FUND supports a variety of ministries at St. John. All trust fund gifts that are not otherwise designated, are placed in this fund. 

 

In addition to funding extraordinary operating expenses, the General Fund provides for "seed money" and programming beyond what is included in the regular operating budget of the congregation (St. John Support).

 

Examples of these programs include:

St. John Quilters
Summer Day Camp
Worship Musicians
 

 St. John corporate sponsors (Badlands Ministries St. Luke’s Nursing Home)

 

A portion of the General Fund also provides resources for St. John to reach beyond our front door to extend God’s love to all people – both locally and globally (Mission Outreach)

 

Examples of these programs include:

 

 

 The COMMUNITY BRIDGING ENDOWMENT FUND provides additional resources for the

St. John Trust Fund to build bridges into our community, helping to meet challenges facing this regional area, including:

  • a shortage in behavior & mental health services
  • overcrowding and underfunding in schools
  • strengthening of the work force within Human Services
  • needs within daycares, early parental services, and early childhood education.
