In late December 1991, Sam and Helen R. Walton made a generous gift of $6 million through the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) Foundation. This gift included an endowment in the amount of $3 million, the earned interest to be used by new church developments that have placed an emphasis on site acquisition.

Those chosen will receive a one-time financial award of up to $50,000.
