Two New Memorial Funds
Memorial Funds were established to honor the lives of Jan Nelson and Jim Scott. Each had participated in the establishment and continuation of the foundation over the years. Each fund was begun with initial $10,000 investment while hoping that others would add to the principals. Jim Scott’s Memorial will aid scholarships through the Alexander Christian Foundation. Jan Nelson’s Memorial is an investment in the facilities at Allendale Christian Camp and Retreat Center.

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you
gave 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)
