As of 12/31/2019 Moravians have $170,749,955.57 under investment through MMFA. It’s the largest amount in the foundation’s 22-year history. These assets represent your collective endowments, trusts, scholarship funds, donor advised funds, gift annuities, pensions and various other investment accounts — all invested for the glory and furtherment of the kingdom of our Chief Elder, Jesus Christ.
Endowed and donor advised funds managed by MMFA generated more than a half million dollars in distributions to ministry in 2019.
Half of these distributions were issued to Moravian congregations in the United States to support the ongoing work of individual, local churches. Global mission work received 23% of the funds from your planned gifts. These gifts funded mostly Moravian global ministries through the Board of World Mission, Unity Women’s Desk, Armando Rusindo Ministry Foundation, and others.
You also gave generously to support U.S. educational institutions and issue scholarships, which accounted for 12% of the funds from your planned gifts. 7% went to institutions devoted to the preservation of Moravian archives, music, and history. Your gifts to Moravian camps in the U.S. accounted for 8% of the funds.
