The CUCC-PG Endowment Fund is a special trust that provides money from investment growth and earned interest to support selected missions and outreach. Each year, half of the Fund's earnings are retained to grow the Fund and ensure its longevity. The other half of the earnings are distributed annually toward projects that fall into one or more of the following categories: education, community service, UCC mission projects, and capital improvements. The Fund is administered by the Endowment Team, projects are evaluated by the Team, and all disbursements are approved by the Leadership Team. In 2019, the Fund supported the Bicycle Ministry in Port Charlotte, the North Fort Myers School for the Performing Arts, Drug Free Punta Gorda, Peace River Botanical and Sculpture Gardens and the Giving Tree. For more information about the Fund, contact Bill Ringelstein, Endowment Team Chair, through the church office: (941) 637-8443, firstname.lastname@example.org. Bill can provide information about submitting a project request or making a tax-deductible gift to the Fund.
