Foundation Fund:

In 1910, our forefathers founded the St. George Greek Orthodox Church (originally in Moline, now in Rock Island).  One of our roles as Orthodox Christians is to keep our church functioning as a part of our daily lives and to preserve it as an integral part of our heritage and spiritual foundation.  With this in mind, the St. George Foundation Fund was established, to generate income from invested funds that are derived from donations.  The purpose of the Foundation Fund is to assure future generations adequate financial support and perpetual income to uphold the church's mission.

The goal of the Foundation Fund is to accumulate $500,000 through investment growth and donations - a sum that will provide security for our heritage in years to come. The principal and income of the Foundation Fund will remain intact as required by the Foundation's bylaws.

The fund is managed by the St. George Foundation Committee. Investments in the marketplace provide a future source of funds for the long-term viability and success of the St. George parish.  The monies donated to the St. George Foundation are restricted and cannot be used for the general operating expense of the church. However, the Church Board can use the interest generated by the Foundation Fund for operating expenses in the year the interest was earned.  If the interest is not used in any given calendar year, it becomes part of the principal.

Please consider making a charitable donation to the Foundation Fund.

You may contribute donations to the Trust Fund in the form of money, securities, life insurance or other properties for a common purpose of building for the future of our church community. Donations can be given on a regular basis, religious holidays, memorials, in wills or other planned gift arrangements.

Donors, like yourself, will enjoy knowing that their contributions will live and grow into perpetuity, while enjoying the benefits by making a tax deductible contribution.

Through this Foundation Fund, we are helping our children prepare for the operation of the St. George Greek Orthodox Church, which we and our ancestors have worked so hard to establish and maintain.
