An endowed fund acts as the Indiana United Methodist Children’s Home “savings account” from which we draw a percentage of the fund’s interest income to support the annual operating budget, including student financial aid.
Endowment giving is both timeless and limitless. Gifts contributed to IUMCHF’s endowment fall into two categories:
General Endowment Fund—gifts that have no limitations. This fund is important as it gives the Home maximum flexibility to meet the evolving needs of the institution.
Restricted Endowment Funds—these funds support specific programs such as spiritual enrichment, staff development, arts, and need-based financial aid at the institution.
If it can be used to benefit the Home or its youth, it will qualify as fitting the mission of IUMCH. Acceptable gifts are those that can be used or sold by the school with minimal cost or upkeep. If you have a question about what personal property the IUMCH will accept, please contact Paul St. Angelo, Executive Director, Indiana United Methodist Children’s Home Foundation at 317-775-0606 or email@example.com.
