Endowment Fund Board of Trustees’ Profiles

Eligibility to Serve on the Endowment Fund Board:
The Endowment Fund Articles of Incorporation provide that members of the Endowment Fund Board must be communicants in good standing of the Church of the Good Shepherd, Inc., Dunedin Florida [and] no less than twenty-five (25) years of age. According to Diocesan Canon VII, to be in “good standing,” a person must be an enrolled member of the parish, regularly attend divine services, and make stated contributions of record to the general support of the Congregation.
“Stated contributions of record” means that the person has contributed financially to the congregation in a manner that permits the contribution to be tracked in our financial records.

Our Trustees have a diverse set of skills, interests and passions.
