Foundation News: March 2022
Looking for a low-risk investment option?
The Foundation's Building Fund Trust offers certificates for one, three or five year terms, with options to have interest earnings re-invested or paid out. Once you choose the term length, the associated rate is guaranteed to last throughout the duration of your term.

We understand rates are at historic lows, but just look at our certificate rates below compared to CD rates at four major banks, or compared to rates on a savings account (chart accurate as of 3/21/2022). Visit our website where you can apply for a certificate as a church or apply as an individual.
Make your donation online:
We have a tool that allows you to give any amount directly to your church's Foundation account! Just click the GIVE button on our homepage and enter your church's account number. You can also donate to Foundation initiatives like scholarships or the HELP loan program.
Other good news:
Saving Grace is back through April:

If you missed our sessions last year of Saving Grace: A Guide to Financial Well-Being, we are offering them again! To any pastor looking to earn a CEU credit, or anyone hoping to learn better money management strategies, the recorded lectures will be posted on our website through the end of April. Password is finances2022.
Thank you scholarship applicants!

Foundation staff are excited to read through this year's scholarship applications. All applicants will be notified via email in April or early May about their application status.
