Endowed and donor advised funds with your Moravian Ministries Foundation in America generated more than a half million dollars in distributions to ministry in 2018. The largest portion, 30%, was issued to mostly Moravian congregations in the United States to support the ongoing work of individual, local churches. Global mission work received 22% of the funds from our 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.
Moravians also gave generously to support U.S. educational institutions and issue scholarships, which accounted for 18% of the funds from these planned gifts. Nearly one in 10 dollars went to institutions devoted to the preservation of Moravian archives, music, and history. Gifts to Moravian camps in the U.S. received 7% of the funds. Other significant funds went to address the causes of homelessness, hunger, poverty, and other challenges within the communities where Moravians live.
