UUCJ Foundation gives Annual Gift to the Church of $18,593!

Friends and members of UUCJ have donated money to the Foundation for the purpose of providing ongoing financial gifts to the church. The year-end balance in the Fund for 2016 is $464,826. The 4% distribution amount for 2017 is $18,593. Due to generous gifts in 2016 which paid off the outstanding loan to the church, the entire amount will be applied to 2017 church operations. In the past, a portion of the annual amount was applied to loan repayment and interest. A gift to the Foundation is a gift that keeps on giving.  Foundation Board members are Mary Carter, Lynn Shad, Barbara Robinson, Melody Shacter, and Bret Hinman.
