Church of the Ascension Testimonial:

Several members of our Endowment Committee attended an evening workshop hosted by the Colorado Episcopal Foundation. The Foundation provided us a step by step process, “best practices,” and examples of materials that other parishes in our diocese used to establish an Endowment Fund.  Because of all the support we received, we were successful in establishing our planned giving program, "The Ascension Legacy”.  The Foundation assisted us with our parish communications and conducted a "Wills Workshop" for parishioners to help them prepare for the future. We are off to a great start with our planned giving program, and we are extremely grateful for the Foundation's support.
