Did you know that Grace has an endowment fund that is managed by the Grace Foundation? The endowment fund was established as a legacy by Clarice and Robert R. Osborne in 1991 and has grown to nearly 2.0 million dollars in value.
The Grace UMC Foundation will be holding an information seminar at Grace Church on Sunday, February 23rd at 2pm to describe how you can become a part of the endowment. The seminar will discuss the ways you can contribute to the endowment, or to Grace Church that have income and estate tax related benefits to you.
If you are interested in attending, please call the church office at 913-859-0111. If you are not sure but decide at the last minute, come anyway. We should have enough space to accommodate you. If you have any questions, call Mike Pelan at extension 204.
