Endowment Fund

Established at the annual meeting of the congregation in 1995, the Mabel First Lutheran Endowment Fund is used to enhance the mission outreach of the church apart from the general operation of the congregation. No portion of the income generated by the fund may be used for the annual operating budget of the congregation. Instead, the income is distributed for mission causes (25% to be used for congregational or community use; 75% for ELCA mission causes or other mission causes not directly related to the ELCA). The Fund is managed by the Endowment Committee, which consists of five voting members of the congregation along with several advisory members.
