Luther Tucker Legacy Society
This planned giving program is dedicated to helping future generations Celebrate God’s Presence in Their Lives
Named for Luther Tucker, an early visionary leader in our church, the Society will strengthen our traditions and ministries to ensure a vibrant, solid foundation for our unique dual denominational church for generations to come.
Our Financial Foundation
Our financial health depends on three distinct types of giving.
Annual support must meet the yearly church operating expenses. Annual giving is an essential stewardship role, but not part of the Society.
Our annual maintenance is underfunded by $100,000 and outreach by $150,000. Until the endowment is sufficient to cover these, annual giving will need to cover these expenses.
To make the current buildings safer and up to date; to fund ongoing maintenance; and to support future needs to worship and community space.
Priority restoration and improvement projects for our five decade old church will require $2,000,000-$2,500,000. The timing for starting this campaign will be determined by the Vestry-Session
Luther Tucker Legacy Society
An e ndowment to provide a legacy for the future primarily to meet ongoing outreach goals, and secondarily, to provide for future building and grounds major maintenance needs.
The total endowment should be $8,000,000-10,000,000 – or ten times the operating budget to provide long-term stability. Today it is approximately $2,500,000.
