The St. Mark’s Church Foundation, founded in 1985, continues to operate as a non-profit organization separate from St. Mark’s Church. During these years, the Foundation has been blessed with donations from members and non-members and as of January 1, 2021, had assets of $159,335.00.
During the past 10 years, we have provided grants totaling $22,734 to individuals, groups and organizations within the church congregation and in outreach to the nearby community and its people. During 2020, grants were awarded to the North St. Paul Area Food Shelf, and two daughters of our congregation, Jeanette Perrault and Emily Ronsberg.
We were successfully audited by an independent account in March and have appropriate checks and balances in place for our financial accounts.
Board Members for 2021 include: President Terry Kapaun, Vice President Craig Sterling, Secretary Barb Michel, Treasurer Tom Michel, Bill Pickett, Steve Linder, Rod Larkins, Paul Ellefson, Linda Kapaun, John Pottratz, Kathy Hanon, and Pastor Mary Froiland. Gerry Duffy is the legal counsel.
The Foundation relies on the generosity of people. Funding is received through direct donations, Thrivent Choice Dollars, Amazon Smile program and employee matching gifts. Gifts can be given at any time, and can be done electronically through the St. Mark’s Church website www.stmarks-nsp.org. Please feel free to contact any of the Board members with questions or comments.
Thank you for visiting the St. Mark’s Foundation website.
In Christ’s service,
Terry Kapaun, President
