The Permanent Endowment Fund of the Federation of Christian Ministries

The Permanent Endowment Fund has been established to enable Federation of Christian Ministries (FCM) members, organizations, and friends to express their commitment to Christ through gifts that will support in perpetuity the inclusive and ecumenical missions and programs of FCM.

This professionally-managed fund exists to financially support the activities and missions of FCM. The Endowment Committee will authorize annual distributions from the Accumulated Appreciation in accordance with the Endowment Fund Policy.

The FCM Endowment Committee will oversee and manage the Fund. The Committee comprises active members of FCM with a Chairperson and Secretary selected by and from the Committee members.

Funds may be donated in any amount, however, larger donations may be designated as a Named Fund. A Memorial Named Fund  is generated by gifts accumulating from $10,000 to $24,999. A Legacy Named Fund is generated by gifts accumulating from $25,000.  The purpose of the earnings of a Legacy Named Fund may be specified by the donor with the approval of the Circle of Directors.  

Gifts to the Fund may include:

     *     Liquid donations (cash and marketable securities)

     *     Non-liquid donations (real estate, art, gems, etc.)

     *     Deferred donations (life insurance, gifts by will or trust, charitable gift annuities, charitable gift remainder trusts, etc.)

If you have made a decision about your contribution, there are two ways to proceed.  

          Donations may be made here on the FCM website.  Click DONATION and drop down the menu to select                      


          A Current Gift Form  is available for making an Endowment donation through the mail.  

If you have already discussed your plans with an advisor and are ready to inform FCM of them, click on Estate Plan Intention and Designation .  Please complete and submit the form, and a member of the Endowment Committee will contact you.

A Tribute Gift in any amount is a meaningful way to honor the life of a friend or family member, living or deceased. It also provides the opportunity to make a donation to celebrate a special occasion - birthday, anniversary or wedding.  Make a gift using our secure online giving form, or print off a mail-in form. We will notify the honoree or honoree's family about your gift.

Thank you very much for considering the FCM Endowment.
