Christ Church Foundation

Through prayerful and careful planning, you can do far more for Christ Church than you ever thought possible. By making a gift to the Christ Church Foundation, you have the opportunity to continue your support for Christ Church in perpetuity.

The Christ Church Foundation was founded in 1979 by the vestry of the Church at the request of the congregation and is administered by the trustees elected by the vestry. Its charter directs the Foundation to:

  • restore, support, benefit, care for and maintain the buildings and grounds of Christ Church.
  • support and benefit the Christian mission of Christ Church outside its parish.
  • assure the faithful execution of the specific terms of gifts made to the church. 

Under the trustees’ prudent management, the Foundation’s funds are invested to provide an annual stream of income to the church for those purposes. Contributions to the Christ Church Foundation qualify for charitable or estate tax gift deductions to the extent allowed by law.

Foundation Trustees

The vestry elects trustees, all members of Christ Church, each for a three-year term and eligible for re-election. The trustees manage the business of the Foundation, elect officers and serve without compensation.

The 2017 Christ Church Foundation trustees are:

  • Elizabeth Rudolph, President
  • John Weaver, Vice President
  • Donald Hilty, Treasurer
  • Carla Rosati, Secretary
  • David Bieging, Trustee
  • James Coakley, Trustee
  • Christopher McMurray, Trustee
  • Donnan Wintermute, Trustee
  • Brian Wommack, Trustee
