In 2014 the Parish established the Saint Peter’s East Maitland Endowment Trust to begin the work of creating an investment fund to provide an income stream to support the ministries of the Church in the future.
The Trust was created by an Ordinance of the Diocese with an initial sum of $100,000. By the end of 2015 the Trust held just under $1 million.
The Resourcing Team has strategies in place to grow the Trust over the next few years through the rationalisation of other assets currently held by the Parish.
Donations can be made directly to the Trust with the assurance that only dividends received from the investments will be spent. The capital of the Trust will be held in perpetuity.
