The Board of Trustees for Rose City Park United Methodist Church (RCPUMC) has established a number of endowments for the purpose of supporting church programs. In some instances, these endowments are in recognition of specific individuals. All of these endowments work to alleviate the burdens of the church budget.
Gifts and contributions to these endowments are invested as principal in a wide range of stocks, bonds, and mutual funds and allowed to grow and accumulate earnings with the sole purpose of producing income to support Rose City Park United Methodist Church. Only the income produced from investments are used to support church programs and needs. The principal from gifts is never used. Therefore, a one-time gift will truly give for forever.
Your give may be directed to any one of the following endowments:
