Christ Church Charitable Foundation
The Christ Episcopal Church in Ponte Vedra Beach Charitable 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. Should funds be available following the award of the scholarships, they are sent directly to the Christ Church Outreach Committee for use in their yearly grant process.
The Foundation is 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 Fr. Tom Reeder with questions regarding the Christ Church Foundation.
Special Note on Shared Treasures:
Due to the construction on the Christ Church campus, the Foundation has suspended the Share Treasures Estate Sale for 2019. However, if you have household furnishing to dispose of, we may be able to help. Our Shared Treasures Committee can offer selected donations to local consignment dealers and, if accepted and sold, the proceeds help continue the Foundation scholarship program and the community outreach ministries of Christ Episcopal Church. Not all donation offers are suitable for consignment but our Committee would be happy to answer your questions.
If you are interested in donating, please contact Casey Slone at 285-7390 ext. 258
