What is the Forge Our Future Endowment?

Forge Our Future is our congregation’s initiative to create a principal-protected endowment intended for long-term investment.

Our annual pledges are our primary source of income to support essential church operations. Creating a principal-protected endowment enables us to diversify and increase our revenue streams to close the gap between annual operating income and annual operating expenses.

The endowment will also help fund expanded ministries and community connections. We have been dreaming for a long time of becoming a more multicultural, multiracial church that is a growing beacon of progressive values and an even more active collaborator for justice in the community.

We inherited this great gift of community because those who came before us invested in it. We live on their legacy. Now it’s our turn to invest in the future, laying the groundwork for those who will come after us.

If we support our church financially with both a robust annual pledge and the profits from a principle-protected endowment fund, we can grow our membership, ministry and outreach in order to build our presence in Milwaukee and increase our impact in the world.
