Organized in 1979 as a separate charitable entity independent of church operational funds, MPC Foundation’s purpose is:
- To establish a means for individuals to give donations of money, stock, land or other tangible property in such a manner that the gifts are invested and continue to grow and increase in perpetuity.
- To establish a means for individuals to request funding for charitable and religious purposes and to administer their disbursements.
MPC Foundation’s Board of Trustees ensures the protection of this Foundation and its mission is:
- To accept funds.
- To receive and evaluate requests, and disburse funds according to the bylaws of this Foundation which will limit disbursements so the Foundation will continue to grow.
- To assist any who desires to donate assets to the MPC Foundation.
- To annually educate our congregation on Foundation activities.
Although giving is its own reward, your donation to MPC Foundation will be prized for:
- Providing an avenue to give monies, appreciated stock, and/or property in order to promote Christianity.
- Continuing to generate funds so that your one-time gift will multiply, just as Jesus’ parable of sowing seeds on good soil.
- Being a 501c3 tax deductible gift.
- Allowing us to give to our church, outside of our church operational fund, for the benefit of charitable causes.
- Experiencing the joy of giving fruitfully and growing a legacy.
