What is an Endowment Fund?

A way for you family and friends to return God's love to future generations through a permanent fund, usually bestowed upon and institution such as a church, by an individual or group. A gift to an endowment fund is never spent; it is invested. Each year the earnings may be used by the institution you designate. We currently have three church-related endowment funds:


Irwin Trust

Each year 5% of the earnings may be used to support the church's operating budget


CCDS Endowment Fund

Available for Christ Church Day School needs


Christ Episcopal Church Endowment Fund

The vestry establishes what percentage of earnings may be used annually to support parish ministries, operating, expenses or special projects.
