By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as a wise builder, and someone else is building on it. – 1 Corinthians 3:10
The Mission Jamaica Legacy Endowment Fund
The Mission Jamaica Legacy Endowment Fund (MJLEF) was established by an ecumenical group of Christians responding to the Lord’s command to help grow His Kingdom. It has one and only one purpose – to support MJ missions with consistent, long term financial backing. We hope to combine small, medium and large gifts from loyal MJ supporters and missionaries over time. The Foundation of St. Andrew’s then invests these donations into a diversified set of stock and bond index funds. The goal is competitive investment returns with prudent levels of risk. The MJLEF is an endowment fund created to last into perpetuity. Up to 5% of principal value is donated from earnings from the fund each year in August.*
A generous initial donation provides money to support feeding the children of WestHaven. Additional donations now provide support for mission scholarships, Callalew Mews and Ja’Bode.
The Foundation of St. Andrew’s is an independent 501 (c) (3) organization established in 2000 to provide funds for religious mission and charitable needs. Donations to The Foundation of St. Andrew’s are legally separate and distinct from operating funds of St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church. Legacies start with a commitment to give back to God and are centered around your values. The goal is to share some of your blessings and treasure with causes that matter most for you and your family. The Foundation seeks to match donor intentions with ministries that serve the needs of people in Christ’s name in the community, the nation and around the world.
Mission Jamaica is an outreach ministry of St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church in Mahtomedi, MN
