Endow the future of the United Church of Christ
You can support the future of local United Church of Christ congregations throughout the country, as well as UCC-affiliated ministries and organizations, with a gift to the Living Stones Endowment Fund (“Endowment Fund”). Contributions of any size to the Endowment Fund are instrumental in supporting the mission of the United Church of Christ Cornerstone Fund.
Since 1993, the Cornerstone Fund has supported more than 625 local United Church of Christ (UCC) congregations and other UCC-affiliated ministries and organizations with low-cost loans—totaling more than $200 million in support for church building purchases and construction; building renovations to improve accessibility or to reduce energy usage; enhanced community impact through affordable housing and/or multi-use property development, among others.
The Living Stones Endowment Fund is an unrestricted fund; however, you may designate a gift within the Endowment Fund for organizations or projects that are important to you (or your congregation), such as accessibility, environmental and energy improvements, affordable housing, youth and young adults, and more. Gifts may also be directed to benefit one of the UCC’s Conferences and its congregations and ministries.
