The Crossings Endowment has been established with only one fund–the general fund. The Endowment will not offer the option of donor-advised funds or designated ministry funds. It is the agreed-upon decision of the Board of Directors that only a general fund is needed. This conclusion was reached due to the Endowment receiving IRS approval as a supporting organization of the church. Earnings from this fund will be used to provide grants to the church based on requests Crossings Community Church makes to the Endowment. These grants will typically involve capital improvement projects; however, some grants to the church may also help fund a new ministry or enhance an existing ministry during a year when general fund giving may not be as solid as it has been historically.
