“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
What is it?
The Endowment Fund of Noroton Presbyterian Church was established in 2012 to create a vehicle for members and friends of the church to make lifetime gifts or bequests to provide for the long-term financial health of NPC. Gifts to the Endowment Fund are to enhance and supplement the financial resources of NPC beyond the annual operating budget and specific capital campaigns. The Benjamin Weed Society was created as an honorary organization, named after one of the early benefactors of NPC, to recognize contributing members and friends.
Have you thought about NPC in your legacy or estate planning?
What has NPC meant to you in your life? For many, this church has been a place of healing, care, education and community. It has been a place to attend weekly worship service, to learn about Christ, to educate children and establish lasting friendships. To our mission partners it is a vital source of support and resources. A gift to the Endowment Fund provides financial backing for the long-term continuation of all that NPC provides to those in this community and to the world at large.
How can you participate...
Gifts to the Endowment Fund can be made during one’s lifetime or through one’s estate as general or restricted gifts. • Income from general gifts is to be distributed to expand NPC’s mission programs, to supplement the costs of capital improvements, or as otherwise needed and approved. • Restricted gifts, as designated by the donor, can be customized for specific use or disbursement.
In faith, we know that all we have been given is a gift from God. In giving to the NPC Endowment Fund we give thanks to God for His many blessings and honor our responsibility to share our gifts to provide for others. Contributing members have the satisfaction of knowing that they are providing a lasting legacy for the many ministries of NPC.
