The Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church Foundation works like an endowment to support and enhance the church’s mission. The Foundation is made up of a number of funds that support specific ministry areas of the church. These areas include: tuition for seminary students, scholarships for youth camps, underserved communities in Philadelphia, our Fine Arts program, and care of the congregation. The Foundation is managed by a volunteer board of church members who are experienced in the field of financial and philanthropy management. The board is served by two committees: (1) the Investment Committee, which manages and oversees how the money is invested for maximum growth at minimal risk; and (2) the Development Committee, which is responsible for seeking out and securing new gifts to the Foundation. Many of the financial gifts to the Foundation come from members’ estate planning.
