Invest in Christian University Education
The Providence Legacy Fund seeks to create a long-term revenue stream in support of the ministry of Providence University College and Providence Theological Seminary.
The Providence Legacy Fund was created so that people who believe in the mission of Providence University College or Providence Theological Seminary can ensure that these two schools can fulfill this mission to form a Christian academic community in the evangelical tradition that teaches people to grow in knowledge and character for leadership and service. The Providence Legacy Fund maintains legacy investments and uses the earnings from these investments to support the work of Providence.
The Legacy Fund receives two kinds of investments. It receives endowments where the capital is preserved in perpetuity and the earnings are used for particular projects or to support general operations. It also receives money in trust in which both the capital and its earnings are used over a specified period of time for a particular project.
Alternatively, you may also donate online to the Providence Legacy Fund through the Winnipeg Foundation
Message from the President
Jesus told a number of parables about stewardship for the kingdom of God. Christians have taken this stewardship seriously over the years, both spiritually and materially. The societies in which they have dominated came to be fairly prosperous and people benefited materially from this prosperity. As Euro-Canadians follow the secularization of their European forebears, they have often lost a sense of stewardship, namely, that God has appointed us to care for what has been given to us in terms of time, talent, and treasure.
Part of the purpose of the Providence Legacy Fund is to encourage Christians to become good stewards of what God has given them. The focus of the Legacy Fund is, of course, on being good stewards of the material gifts given to us by God. But often, when one concentrates on wise stewardship in one area, they begin to think of the stewardship of the other areas of their life as well. I encourage you to think of yourself as a good steward of all that God has given you, your wealth, your time, your talents, your family, your work, and your leisure. Then, someday you will be able to enter into the joy of your Master and hear the wonderful words, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.”
As in biblical times, leaving a legacy is an important aspect of stewardship today. I encourage you to look over the Providence Legacy Fund pages on our website. Then, give us a call or send us an email so we can put you in touch with those who can help you become a good steward of what God has given you.
