About the Advent Foundation

Established in 1983, the Advent Foundation was created by and for the
Episcopal Church of the Advent to honor our history, sustain the present, and
nurture the future. The Foundation’s fundamental purposes are:

  • To hold, manage, invest, and reinvest gifts in trust for the use and
    the benefit of the Church of the Advent
  • To use prudent methods of investment and reinvestment in order to
    assure the best preservation of, and income from, such investments
  • Provide continuity in the investment and endowment program of the
    Advent in support of its charitable, religious, and educational efforts
    through its ministries and facilities
