The Conference Claimants’ Endowment Board was blessed to receive a legacy gift from the trust of Rev. Mary McCollum (at left), who believed in the work and mission of the organization so deeply that she wanted to continue to support the retirees and spouses even beyond her earthly life.
Thanks to the sound investment of the funds by The Endowment Board, the trust generated quarterly income payments to Rev. McCollum that more than doubled her initial investment over the course of her lifetime, while also ultimately leaving a legacy gift larger than her initial donation. She also named The Endowment Board in her obituary, which prompted additional donations.
On behalf of The Endowment Board, its staff, and those we support, we share our deep gratitude for Rev. McCollum and her spirit of giving.
