We all plan for the future. We often set goals for ourselves related to our careers, fitness, or retirement. However, the most important plans we make concern the welfare of others, particularly our families. We thoughtfully consider what the future may hold and take appropriate action to provide for them. As a spiritual community, we are called to plan for the future of our church – our spiritual family, in the same way. To accomplish this, we would like to establish an endowment fund to provide a reliable source of income to New Thought NoCo for generations to come.


We have been given the opportunity this year through the Science of Mind Foundation to set up an endowment fund, something that may not be available to us again in the future. The Science of Mind Foundation is an organization established to promote, raise funds, maintain, and operate an endowment fund for the advancement of awareness and understanding of the philosophy of Science of Mind globally through the support of Centers for Spiritual Living and the institutions, churches, centers, organizations, and study groups, which teach and promote the philosophy of Science of Mind.


The Foundation will match, on a dollar-for-dollar basis, the initial contribution to an endowment fund, in an amount of up to $25,000 per endowment fund. The minimum contribution required to create an endowment fund is $25,000. Presently, we have received commitments from individuals in the community totaling $15,000. We are hoping to raise an additional $10,000 to equal the required $25,000. 


It is intended that the income of the Fund not be used for ongoing church operating expenses but rather, the undesignated income earned by the Fund shall be allocated to expand and enrich the ministry of the church. Possible examples include:


  • Money for special projects or programs related to education, outreach, music, or youth

  • Church facilities – capital improvements or major repairs to a future building.


The New Thought Northern Colorado’s Endowment Fund has a unique purpose in the life of our spiritual community— to empower NTNC beyond what is possible through annual operating funds. The Endowment Fund is not simply a hedge against future uncertainties, it is a commitment to the future of NTNC. 


We ask you to prayerfully consider your role in building NTNC’s Endowment Fund. If you would like additional information or wish to discuss confidentially the best way for you to make a gift, please feel free to contact me. The deadline for collecting contributions is August 31st. We are grateful for your generosity and commitment to ensuring an abundant future for New Thought Northern Colorado. 


Much love and infinite gratitude,



Rev. Lea Alvarado                                       NTNC Core Council
