New Hope Endowment Fund

Mission | The mission of the New Hope Church Endowment Fund Board is to enhance discipleship and stewardship for the continual long-term growth of New Hope’s Christian ministries within the community.
Living Legacy | Through generous donations, the NHEF principal is invested for total return through the Columbus Foundation. On an annual basis, a portion of the interest income, from the previous year, is awarded to Christian non-profit charities in the form of grants. Your principal investment is never touched, lives on as principal forever, earns interest, and provides a lasting Living Legacy to New Hope today, tomorrow and in the future.

Annual Grant Process | To be eligible for grant funds, applicants simply need to submit a Grant Request prior to the annual deadline (usually the first Sunday in March). After evaluation by the Grant Committee, recipients are selected, approved, and notified. To meet the deadline, the Grant Application must be completed and emailed to the New Hope Endowment Fund Board Grant team at nhefbgrants@gmail.com.

NHEFB Financial Support Opportunities | If you would you like to help further the mission of the New Hope Endowment Fund Board through financial support, please support our fundraisers (Memorial Bricks, Easter Flowers, Ticket Raffles) and/or donate directly to the fund (Benefactor, Inheritance & Gifting). Remember, all financial donations are a Living Legacy!
