Endowment

Honor our history. Enrich our present. Anticipate our future.

With a gift to St. David’s Episcopal Church Foundation, forward thinking individuals who love St. David’s can leave an enduring legacy. The gift principal is invested and never spent when directed to an endowment fund. As the funds of the Foundation grow, distributions from earnings are made. These distributions support the purposes for which the endowment funds were established.

Today, net assets of St. David’s Episcopal Church Foundation are over $5 million. A gift to St. David’s Episcopal Church Foundation is a wonderful way simultaneously to be part of our church history and of our church future.

Immediate gifts may be made by sending a check directed to: St. David’s Episcopal Church Foundation, 301 East 8th Street, Austin, TX 78701. If the gift is an honorarium or memorial, please note who is to be honored or remembered and where an acknowledgment should be sent. A record of memorial gifts is kept in the book of Remembrance on display outside the Historic Sanctuary.

Planned gifts through bequests and other gift provisions are vitally important to building the endowment of St. David’s. People who make a planned gift provision or who establish a named gift of the Foundation are members of The Sumners Legacy Society.

The 2016 Report on the Church Foundation, St. David’s Investment Policy and the parish Gift Acceptance Policy are available for your review. Planning for a Graceful Exit includes estate and end-of-life decisions as well as language for bequests.
