On that day the Foundation will hold a special luncheon at Brookside Golf and Country Club to honor Heritage Society members for their support of the future needs of First Community Church. Invited guests will include Heritage Society members and volunteer leaders of First Community Church. Invitations will be mailed in early April.
The program will include a performance by QUBE, the Artist-in-Residence string quartet comprised of faculty members at Otterbein University.
Support for this event will be provided by BNY Mellon Wealth Management, manager of the Foundation’s investment portfolio.
The Society members are First Community Church members who decide that financial support of our church and its ministries is important beyond the immediate needs of the church for operating budget and capital campaign gifts. They know that many of the church’s programs, ministries and projects, which make our church unique, are made possible by grants from First Community Foundation. In 2011, Foundation grants totaled $457,259. Much of the money provided in those grants came from Foundation funds that were established years ago through direct gifts or estate plans. Those donors strongly believed in leaving a legacy for the future of our church. The ability of the Foundation to provide assistance for our church tomorrow will depend largely on legacy decisions made today by current church members. Please join us in this special effort.
Heritage Society members qualify for membership in the Society by making cash gifts to the Foundation of $2,500 or more or by including the Foundation or the Church in their wills or other estate plans.
