How we help
The EPC Foundation partners with experts, rather than create our own expensive organizational structure. The EPC Foundation office staff is intentionally small, so we partner with the world’s largest Christian grant-making foundation, the National Christian Foundation. At no cost to the EPC, the NCF provides superb expertise, reliable infrastructure, and trustworthy management for EPC churches, individuals, and asset owners. The EPC Foundation and staff do not usurp or interfere with donor decision-making, but rather act as a liaison to:
- Assist individuals and churches, and
- Enhance local church and donor interests
The EPC Foundation and NCF provide resources that enhance our ability to support Christian efforts well beyond current levels, and instill trust in proper management and application of funds. Some benefits to you include:
- Biblical stewardship
- Kingdom purposes
- Donor-advised use
- Legal compliance
- Tax-wise methods
