Varick Memorial Church Endowment
Varick Memorial Church Endowment

We are blessed at Varick Memorial to be a church with a long and storied history. For 195 years this church has been a beacon of Christian light to the city of New Haven. We understand that "to whom much is given much is required"  so we not only look back and thank God for our past but we want to make sure that our Church and ministry will be financially secure for generations to come, this is why we have established The Varick Endowment. We have partnered with the Community Foundation of Greater New Haven and the Urban Prosperity Foundation who will support and manage operations of our endowment.


There are several ways you can choose to share with the Endowment that will perpetuate your generosity and love for Varick Memorial.


1. In-kind Monetary Gift
You can choose to make a one-time, weekly donation along with your tithe, or you may choose to donate an annual amount to the endowment.
