Two funds currently exist: an unrestricted endowment fund and a fund dedicated to building improvements. The Board of Trustees may annually request a disbursement of earnings from the funds to finance ongoing operations. Withdrawal of fund principal can only be accomplished after two congregational votes, each with a 2/3 majority. If you are considering a gift to the endowment funds, endowment fund trustees are available to help you. The trustee panel consists of three volunteers serving three-year terms, with a new trustee rotating into the trust annually. Trustees are selected by the nominating committee and voted onto the panel during the annual meeting of the congregation. All of us at the First Unitarian Church have benefited from the gifts and bequests from those who came before us as members. Without their generosity, we would not have a place of our own for liberal religion in Oklahoma City. There comes a time when many of us may wish to participate in that legacy of fellow UU's.
