Christ Church Foundation

The Christ Episcopal Church in Ponte Vedra Beach Foundation was established in 1983. Its purpose is to support, enhance and continue the religious, charitable and educational activities of Christ Episcopal Church, both within our parish and in our community. Foundation funds are used for four-year Florida pre-paid university scholarships and educational grants for deserving and economically challenged students.

Our Foundation is unique compared to most church endowments in that it is not used to fund the day-to-day operating expenses of the church. 

Scholarships are funded by:

  • A sponsored tour of area homes of note
  • A Patron party
  • A golf and tennis tournament
  • Shared Treasures – a sale featuring estate items and property

The Foundation is managed by a board of trustees elected by our Vestry (the lay leadership committee of our parish, analogous to a Board of Directors) and chaired by our Rector. Please contact The Rev. Thomas P. Reeder with questions regarding the Foundation.
