ICCEC Foundation Day

What we Do

Each year on the Sunday closest to the consecration of our first Bishop, Archbishop Adler (26 June, 1992) we collect an offering. This offering was originally made to present Archbishop Adler with funds to help him in his ministry, instead he said that the best use of this money was to provide grants and loans to our churches that were building and expanding their churches.

This year, on 26 June, we ask each person to contribute $10 per person in their family to the Founders Day Fund. This money is then distributed in thirds. One third is given out in loans, one third is given out in low interest loans (currently 3%), and one third in invested for the future. Click on the above Tabs to see the details.

Fiscal Summary

Each Year 1/3 of the funds are invested for the future. The funds have been invested conservatively and there have been no loss of principle since 2008, when the fund began active management. The fund had purchased share of Center Pointe Bank in 2007, at $10 a share at the IPO. These shares suffered from the subsequent bank down turn. While the bank stock has suffered, the bank has grown, so the stock has been held until the initial investment is met or exceeded. See stock chart below.


The cash in the fund is held in two Vanguard no load funds. The first Vanguard Short-Term Federal Fund Admiral Shares (VSGDX) keeps the bulk invested and ensures maintenance of a workable principle. This is a bond fund and produces income and growth primarily through dividends, no growth in price. The remaining cash and all new invested funds are invested in the Vanguard 500 Index Fund (VFINX). This funds fluctuates more, but allows for a greater growth potential.


Funds will continue to be invested for the foreseeable future.
