The mission of E91 Foundation is to provide an opportunity for church members and friends to leave a lasting legacy for the support of Christian service. Donors will reach beyond themselves and impact generations – for eternity. Tithing and direct giving by current church members supports the current budget and life of the congregation. E91 Foundation is a separate entity that gives to tax-exempt Christian organizations.

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you have me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.” (Matthew 25:35,36 NIV)

The E91 Foundation has invested bequests, memorials, and gifts and has granted more than $1.8 million to evangelical nonprofit
ministries in Indianapolis and across the world.
