The Mount Olivet Foundation is funded from the returns on an endowment established by donations from individuals from the Mount Olivet UMC community. Contributions have been received since the start of activities in 1967.
The Board exercises careful oversight over the placement and use of these funds so as not to deplete the endowment and provide for the long term financial health of the organization.
The Board is always looking for individuals and institutions who believe in the objectives of the Foundation and would be willing to donate funds, in any form, to support its activities. Funds are typically used to support the Loan or Grant programs. Often a fund is set up in honor or memory of a loved one. Such a named fund requires a minimum donation of $ 10,000. If you are interested in making a large bequest, please use the Contact Form to reach us.
