First Community Foundation
“We have made at least a start on discovering the meaning of human life when we plant shade trees under which we know full well we will never sit.” – Elton Trueblood
First Community Foundation of First Community Church is a not-for-profit organization created to encourage and receive gifts from people and organizations wishing to support the programs and ministries of First Community Church, Camp Akita, and other worthwhile projects.
Its purpose is to fund religious, charitable, scientific, literary, and educational endeavors. It encourages friends and members of the church to include the Foundation in their financial and estate planning, and to establish funds within the Foundation to help fulfill its mission.
First Community Foundation is a separate 501© (3) public charitable corporation whose Board of Trustees is appointed by the church Governing Board. The Foundation stands apart from First Community Church, yet by its side to assist the church in those areas of financial need not covered by the church’s annual operating budget or special capital campaigns.
We have an education video as well as printed material about the Foundation that we would be happy to share with you. It is our hope that you will consider including First Community Foundation in your financial and estate planning. We are available to speak to groups, please do not hesitate to contact us .
