The St. Augustine’s Endowment Fund was established in 2001. It has steadily grown since then and parishioners can ensure that it continues to grow. The mission of the Endowment Fund is to provide for the long-term life and ministry of St. Augustine’s. The capital in the fund is held, invested and not spent, however the income earned from the invested money can be spent to ensure the maintenance of the church, to provide increased funding to grow programs for families and youth, for Christian education, for worship through music and for outreach into the community. The Endowment Fund is held and administered by the Community Foundation of Lethbridge and Southwestern Alberta and invested by RBC Phillips, Hager & North Investment Counsel. Donors may direct where the income from their gift to the Endowment Fund is to be used, and a charitable receipt for tax purposes will be provided to you or your Estate.
After providing for your loved ones, please consider making a provision for St. Augustine's in your Will worded as follows: “to be paid to St. Augustine’s Anglican Church of Lethbridge, Alberta.” For more information about gifts in a Will or of an insurance policy, please contact the Church office or the Rector at 403-327-3970.
