Episcopal Church Memorial Foundation, Inc.
The Episcopal Church Memorial Foundation of Bozeman, Montana is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation that is separate from the Saint James parish corporation. The Foundation benefits Saint James Episcopal Church in Bozeman and the Episcopal Diocese of Montana. The purpose of the Foundation is to receive, manage, and distribute money given to the Foundation for the benefit of Saint James Episcopal Church for purposes other than current church operations.
Donors may designate gifts to the Foundation for specific purposes; otherwise gifts are held in a fund with the income distributed for the benefit of Saint James Episcopal Church.
The Foundation is administered by a nine-member Board of Trustees. The Trustees are elected by members of Saint James Episcopal Church who are at least 16 years of age and who are faithful in worship attendance, prayers and giving financially to God's ongoing ministries at Saint James. Every baptized person who is at least 16 years of age, who is in regular attendance at services of Saint James parish in Bozeman, Montana or who, in any way, contributes regularly to the support of said church or the services thereof, is a member of the Foundation. The Foundation's Trustees serve a term of three years and three Trustees are elected each year. The Trustees meet at least quarterly and more often if required. Members of the Foundation are welcome to attend the meetings.
A gift to the Episcopal Church Memorial Foundation in memory of a loved one or in thanksgiving for a blessing in one's life assures that funds will be available for Saint James Episcopal Church in the future. Envelopes for making such gifts are available at the rear of the church. If you wish to place a donation in the offertory plate, please put your donation in one of these envelopes. This will ensure that your gift comes directly to the Foundation and is not inadvertently deposited with church funds. Checks should be made payable to Episcopal Church Memorial Foundation of Bozeman, Montana. Donations can be mailed to:
