Endowment Fund application: The South Carolina Synod Mission Endowment Fund, established at the 2003 Synod Assembly, is intended to grow through investments and additional gifts. Grant applications will be accepted between July 1 and August 1 of each calendar year. The Grant Committee will review these applications and make their recommendations by October 1. These recommendations will be reported to the Synod Council for their approval. Applications may be submitted by South Carolina Synod (ELCA) institutions, congregations, ministry teams, committees, and organizations. Download the Mission Endowment application form.

A word about the Remittance Advisory Form: Treasurers use the Remittance Advisory Form (the “green form”) when they send congregational checks to the Synod Office. This form gives the synod treasurer specific information as to where the dollars should go, such as Mission Support, SC Synod Support, ELCA Disaster Relief, ELCA World Hunger, missionaries, helping agencies, synodical institutions, etc. The treasurer’s office receives these gifts, prepares receipts, and copies the information for your records. When you send in your next gift, you keep the white receipt and return the green remittance form to the Synod Office. NOTE: If you have lost your green remittance form, please contact Linda Albert and she will email you the latest revision of this form. Her contact information is at the top of this page.

Please make all checks payable to “South Carolina Synod” and use the memo line for the purpose of the check. Thank you.

Endowment Fund Application

The South Carolina Synod established a Synod Mission Endowment Fund at the 2003 Synod Assembly. Initial funding for the fund came from the estate of The Rev. and Mrs. John H. Koch. This fund is intended to fund mission development within the South Carolina Synod and for special expressions of God’s love in the world.
