Ministers Council Announces New Endowment Gift of Stock Program

VALLEY FORGE, PA (ABNS 11/25/14)—The Ministers Council is pleased to announce its new Ministers Council Endowment Gift of Stock Program as a beneficial way for supporters to invest in training, education, peer learning, and other resources to increase the effectiveness of ministry leaders.

This Endowment program is being introduced to replace the three-year Together in Ministry Capital Campaign that ends in 2014.

“We want to make it as easy as possible to support efforts to increase ministerial effectiveness,” says Rev. Debora Jackson, executive director of the Ministers Council. “For the last three years, we’ve run a capital campaign and now as we are maturing a fund development capacity as an organization, we are implementing new strategies to accommodate giving. We hope that our efforts will allow for the creation of programs and extended resources that positively impact ministers and equip them for ministry in their communities.”
