Foundation Ministry Supports Many Ministries at St. Matthew

The St. Matthew Foundation Board manages funds that have been provided by generous donors over the years. These funds are intended to be used for projects not included in the overall yearly budgets. The principal remains in the funds, while a portion of the interest gained each year is distributed via grants - much like an Endowment Fund. These grants have supported items such as new stain for the altar and stage at Walled Lake, library materials for the school, BBQ supplies for Neighbors bridge ministry, furniture and room updates at Wixom, and more!

The funds are invested in and managed by Thrivent Financial, much like a 401k. In 2017, the Foundation Board was happy to award 11 grants to fund $13,654.63 in projects for the church and $4,029.46 in projects for the school. We have been blessed with interest again this year and will receive applications for grants again in 2018!

When you make a special gift donation to the Foundation Ministry above your normal giving, those funds are invested to grow indefinitely! Your gift will continue to support St. Matthew for many years in the future. To make a donation to the Foundation, you can simply write a check out to St. Matthew and write "Foundation Ministry" in the note section. Place your donation in an offering plate or mail it to the church office. Also, you can donate online by clicking "Donate" on the main page. Use the "Other Special Gifts" field and type "Foundation Ministry" in the note section. You can also support the Foundation by praying that God would continue to bless these funds to be used to further His Kingdom.
