Your church or faith-based organization has created an endowment fund through InFaith Community Foundation. This endowment fund is designed to grow and provide ongoing, permanent support for the future. For many organizations, this support means the difference between "just getting by," and bringing a mission to life for generations to come.
There are many ways to make a gift and support an endowment fund. Our expert staff is available to answer your questions and help you give to your endowment fund in ways that match your financial interests and abilities.

Other ways to give
To make a gift of stock or mutual fund assets, please call InFaith. We will provide specific instructions based on the following:
- Stock held by a brokerage firm, bank or other financial institution
- Stock held by a company with a transfer agent
- Stock or mutual funds to be transferred from an account at Thrivent
- Stock held in paper certificates
The estimated time to complete your gift is dependent on how it’s held. If you’re unclear about how your stock is held, please call us for assistance with related paperwork (statement and/or report) in hand. While there is typically no cost associated with the transfer of stock or mutual funds to InFaith Community Foundation, there is a nominal fee incurred when InFaith liquidates the transferred assets. These charges are deducted from proceeds of the stock or mutual fund sale/liquidation and do not reduce your charitable deduction.
If you are 70½ or older, you may create a non-advised charitable fund with gifts of qualified charitable distributions from your IRA. When making this type of gift, you recommend one or more IRS-qualified charities to receive automatic annual grants from your charitable fund, either in perpetuity or for a term of years. If a charity you recommend loses its tax-exempt status, grants will be reallocated among remaining charities. If all charities cease to exist, remaining charitable support is directed to the InFaith Community Fund. When making this type of gift, you do not have advisory capacity over the charitable fund once it is established due to IRS regulations.
- Contact your IRA administrator and request a QCD be sent directly to: InFaith Community Foundation: 600 Portland Ave South, Suite 5100, Minneapolis MN 55415 / Tax ID: 41-1802412.
- Notify InFaith when the distribution request has been made, so we can watch for the check and ensure it’s properly credited to your non-advised fund.
- InFaith will send a gift acknowledgement for the QCD to share with your tax preparer.
