Named Endowments

makingTax-deductible endowment contributions, large or small, are combined into the Named Endowments pool. It is invested to provide maximum earnings, while protecting the principal against inflation. The pool has grown to over $13MM since the inception of the Foundation. Earnings are allocated to each fund then distributed as specified by the endowment agreements.

By safeguarding permanent funds and growing the principal with new gifts, Oklahoma Disciples Foundation will be able to distribute much needed income to many different ministries. From providing seed money for a fledgling new church to sending a young child to camp or helping a student prepare for the ministry, a Named Endowment fund serves as a perpetual legacy. Individuals and churches can establish an Endowment Fund or contribute to an existing one and help to make an ongoing difference in countless ways.

Each year, ODF requests the beneficiaries of our endowment funds to certify that the monies distributed the previous year have been used in accordance with the requirements of the individual endowment.
