Many churches and faith-based nonprofits recognize the need to create a perpetual source of income to support their mission in the future. InFaith offers these organizations a flexible option for building an endowment for whatever purpose they choose.

Why consider InFaith for your organizations's endowment? Among the many advantages, InFaith offers a full range of charitable giving options and professional gift planners to help people give to your fund in ways that match their personal circumstances.

In addition, your endowment's assets are invested in a large, fully-diversified pool of low-cost institutional investments, with advisement by one of the nation's leading investment advisors.

How Endowment Funds Work
Your organization can create an endowment fund for general purpose or for a special purpose, such as outreach efforts, building maintenance or education ministries. The minimum to establish an endowment fund is $25,000.

Once your organization's fund is established, it's available for your supporters to make outright gifts and/or gifts upon death. Gifts can be made through direct gifts of cash, securities or real estate, or though deferred gifts of charitable life insurance, the remainder of a charitable trust or gift annuity, or a bequest.

InFaith owns, invests and holds the fund for the benefit of your organization, and the fund, in turn, offers ongoing support to the charitable purposes of your organization.
