St. Thomas finances are divided into three categories -the Annual Budget derived from your yearly stewardship giving used for salaries, repairs and utilities; Capital Reserve Fund for larger specific projects; and the Endowment Fund for long term support for the life and love of our Church. St. Thomas's Endowment fund provides us a source of income each year to support church and faith life related projects beyond the day-to-day operations.
From the 2022 Annual Report:
Over the past year the committee has worked on researching and understanding ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) long term investment accounts. The Vestry approved adding an ESG account. When someone wants to remember the life and love of our beloved St. Thomas, they have an option to include a gift that invests in things that align with our mission and focus on energy efficiency, inclusion, gender & diversity, human rights, and affordable housing.
