“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” (1 Peter 4:10 NIV)
Legacy is an auxiliary foundation of Christian Fellowship Church (CFC) headquartered in Ashburn, Virginia in the greater Washington DC metro area. The foundation was created in 2007 by the CFC Board of Directors to raise funds for the Church’s charitable, educational and religious purposes. Fundraising is through planned giving from church members and other participants, and fundraising is focused on the Northern Virginia community as well as the Church membership.
The Foundation’s Vision is to create an everlasting legacy journey for individuals to invest in future generations.
The Foundation’s Mission is to educate and support charitable contributions promoting the Legacy Foundation’s impact on local and global communities.
The Foundation’s Goals are to help individuals and businesses to determine the best way to designate gifts for the future generations, manage those gifts effectively so they continue to grow in value, and provide resources through awards to individuals/families and organizations in times of need. This is accomplished by:
- Growing the foundation financial base by inspiring and educating donors which result in future, planned gifts or donations through estate plans, such as wills/trusts and insurance policies, as well as near term monetary contributions.
- Utilizing a network of training professionals to provide financial planning to Biblically/effectively manage their wealth while providing tangible benefits to Kingdom building.
- Provide financial assistance for families/individuals through monetary awards for charitable, educational and religious purposes.
Legacy is led by a volunteer Board of Directors elected by CFC members. The foundation Board provides oversight, administration and leadership in support of the foundation’s vision and mission and goals.
“Legacy giving is intentional giving beyond the tithe and offerings. The tithe and offerings is giving as a matter of obedience to God and giving beyond the tithe and offerings is a matter of a heart for God. What we do with what is left over after the tithe and offerings is the good and Godly stewardship of our time, talents and treasurer we are called to by Jesus.
We educate and equipped good stewards and raise awareness of the foundation’s activities through group and individual meetings. We connect with donors through educational financial seminars, equipping donors with financial management tools and tax optimizing options. Increased education and awareness means more donors and donations, allowing us to grow the legacy funds so as to continue educating and equipping stewards and to give away more money each year for Kingdom work.
Legacy goal is to give away money for His Kingdom purposes. Within fund resources, and distribution guidelines, we will make cash grants in response to written award requests. To that end, we have created an enduring legacy fund; the Foundation invests raised funds and only gives away amounts based on the annual return on investment resulting from asset appreciation, dividends and interest.
