MDRC ENDOWMENT FUND
The Meredith Drive Reformed Church Endowment Fund was established in 1999 to provide an outreach that is beyond what is provided for in our regular church budget. You might consider this as a way to invest in mission and outreach at MDRC. An endowment fund is simply an account from which only the earnings are used. All contributions to the endowment fund are invested and remain untouched. Only a portion of the interest is used each year for mission projects and other outreach, thereby allowing the fund to grow and continue to reach out in Jesus' name long beyond our own earthly lives.
