Redeemer Endowment Fund

Be a part of Redeemer's future. By definition, an endowment is a financial asset donation made to a non-profit group or institution in the form of investment funds or other property that has a stated purpose at the bequest of the donor. Most endowments, including Redeemer's Endowment Fund, are designed to keep the principle amount intact while using the investment income from dividends for charitable efforts.

Mission

The mission and purpose of the Redeemer Endowment Fund is living out the Word and healing ministry of Jesus by calling people to live in community with God and each other, with a grateful heart and an understanding of the importance of a legacy of giving.
