The Congregational Church of Austin, UCC, Endowment Fund


Over the past several years, the Congregational Church of Austin, UCC, has received many generous financial contributions that have enabled our church to begin a CCA Endowment Fund. How does the fund work? Each year we transfer a small portion of the CCA Endowment Fund to the church’s General Fund to support our church’s operating budget – thus the fund continues to grow, while at the same time provides ongoing income for church activities. To contribute, contact the church  by calling (512-472-2370) or email at  ucausti@swbell.net
