The Mount Vernon Presbyterian Foundation was created in 1998 in order to fund church related and outreach projects beyond funds provided by the church itself. Funds contributed to the Foundation may be designated for a specific purpose or provided for general use. The Foundation funds projects out of the interest earned on the principal contributed for that purpose.
It is the goal of the Foundation to fund projects that support mission and outreach, buildings and equipment, Christian education, worship and music, and other Christian based projects as approved by the board. We particularly give priority to projects that promote Christian values and programs where our grant can make the most impact.
The Foundation operates on a grant tier system:
Tier 1: MVPC Activities – MVPC Youth
Tier 2: MVPC Focus Charities – The Mount Vernon School, Alliance for Children Everywhere (ACE), Community Assistance Center (CAC), Los Niños Primero (LNP), and Family Promise
Tier 3: Other Charity Support – Clifton Sanctuary Ministries, Stirred Up Ministries, Faith Works School, etc.
