    What is the Presbyterian Foundation?

    The Presbyterian Foundation is a nonprofit corporation of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). The Foundation was established by the General Assembly of 1795, which authorized the formation of a corporation for the purpose of encouraging voluntary participation in funding “for the cause of ministerial relief and other pious or charitable uses.” The Foundation was given the responsibility to obtain and administer funds for the spread of the gospel and the compassionate work of the church.

    Today the Presbyterian Foundation holds the endowments, planned gifts, and mid- to long-term investments of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), or PC(USA), and receives and administers gifts from individuals. In 2011, the Foundation received gifts and deposits of $23.1 million and distributed nearly $66 million in support of various mission projects.

  • Wineskins Letter

    From Office of the General AssemblyOffice of Governing Body Relations

    The New Wineskins Association of Churches has raised significant questions about the faith and mission of the church that every Presbyterian should take seriously. NWAC has presented its case in A Time for Every Purpose Under Heaven: Report of the Strategy Team of the New Wineskins Association of Churches. Unfortunately, in advancing their case New Wineskins has presented the positions of the PCUSA inaccurately. As they consider the analysis of NWAC, all Presbyterians deserve to know the defined positions of the Presbyterian Church (USA).
