The Henry M. Edmonds Society recognizes those who have named Independent Presbyterian Church Foundation as a beneficiary of a planned gift. Named in honor of Dr. Henry M. Edmonds, the founding pastor of IPC who led the church from 1915 – 1942, the Society encourages gifts to the Foundation that seek to support mission and ministries of the church through legacy giving.
The IPC Foundation was formed in 1973 for the purpose of extending IPC ministries through the use of endowments. At 2015 year-end, the Foundation held almost $61 Million in endowment funds. Grants and distributions paid in 2015 amounted to $2.4 Million.
The Foundation honors donor philanthropic intent and invests and manages funds to accomplish donor intentions.
Everyone who informs the Foundation in writing before December 31, 2016, that the Foundation is included in his/her estate plan will be acknowledged as a “Founding Member” of the Henry M. Edmonds Society.
We are deeply grateful for your gifts that will realize your dreams for making a difference in the world and will change the world of those who benefit directly from your generosity.
