Endowing Asbury’s Future

Take a moment to consider what you value about Asbury United Methodist Church. The people? The outreach programs? The small groups that enrich your life? The worship services? What would you add to this list?

Asbury United Methodist Church makes a difference in our lives, and in our community. And you make that possible! Your participation at Asbury assures that we will continue to be a place centered in Jesus Christ, where we grow in faith, celebrate community and serve others with love.

We invite you to consider a financial donation to our endowment fund, which provides an ongoing source of income. Your donation, in honor of Asbury or a loved family member, builds long term security. You are giving a gift to Asbury’s future well-being. What a way to make a difference!

As we celebrate Asbury’s 150th anniversary, we are fortunate to benefit from the foresight of the people who came before us. For example, in the early 60’s members purchased the current 10 acres on East Avenue for Asbury’s new location. Over the past 50+ years it has provided ample space for many buildings that support a variety of programs, abundant room for parking, beautiful courtyards and planting areas, a lawn area for play, with room to spare for the Garden of Grace!
In a similar spirit of forethought, Asbury established in fall 2016 an Endowment Fund that looks to provide income to meet Asbury’s needs in future years. For example, the same space that is such a blessing to us today, may in the future become a financial burden as maintenance costs increase.

Gifts given to the Endowment Fund are invested in diverse mutual funds that will grow over the long term. The Endowment Fund charter states that all gifts must remain intact; only the net profit from the investments can be used as needed by Asbury. Imagine the Endowment Fund growing so that some day in the future its income could be used to pay maintenance costs, or perhaps the utility bills, or even a staff salary. How satisfying to know that gifts to the Endowment Fund will be used to support Asbury’s programs and presence in Livermore year after year!

If you would like more details on the Endowment Fund, please talk to Art Molvik or Dave Braun. Contributions can be made anytime, just by writing Endowment Fund on the check’s memo line, or on an envelope.
