Providing for the next 120 years of ministry, and beyond.
Providing Long-term Mission Sustainability
The Epworth Children’s Home Endowment provides for the children at Epworth today – and those who will arrive at Epworth in the years to come. Throughout the generations, faithful donors have entrusted Epworth with managing a modest endowment of invested funds created from gifts of all sizes. The endowment provides long-term sustainability for Epworth's mission.
Endowment Growth Goal: $3,000,000
The Epworth Endowment provides long-term sustainability to continue Epworth's tranformational ministry for years to come.
Planning ahead to care for the future needs of children.
A significant portion of Epworth's modest endowment are funds provided through planned gifts. Planned gifts of cash, appreciated stock, retirement accounts, life insurance, real estate, and more are often tax-wise methods of giving for you, your family and the children at Epworth. Common planned giving methods include a simple bequest in a donor's will, or more advanced techniques such as a charitable lead trust or charitable remainder trust. Establishing a charitable gift annuity can even provide a donor and his/her spouse with income during their lifetime, while supporting the children at Epworth.

The endowment consists primarily of various invested funds. All funds within the endowment are pooled and managed together. This enables savings on investment management fees and enables highest possible returns on all funds. These endowment funds are carefully stewarded by the Epworth Board of Trustees. The trustees select qualified and successful investment firms to manage the normal operations of the endowment while the Epworth administration oversees the process and reports quarterly to the Trustees.
