Securing Christian Opportunity Center’s Future

Purpose: COC Foundation Fund provides financial support to the COC mission of integrating Christian values in empowering individuals with disabilities to realize their full potential.

Mission: COC Foundation Fund solicits and receives gifts and manages its assets with integrity to provide regular support and long-term financial stability to COC.

Explanation of Operations

Each year, COC Foundation Fund contributes five percent (5%) of the three-year average of year-end assets. This money is distributed annually into four funds:

  • Staff Enhancement Fund, to reward and provide incentives to staff members to continue their service to COC
  • Special Education Fund, which subsidizes the high costs of the special education programs that moved to the local Christian schools in 1988
  • Trip/Event/Camp Fund, which provides special trips or events for the people we support, many of whom would otherwise never have a vacation
  • Spiritual Nurture Fund, which provides support for retreats and for the Friendship Bible Hour program

If you would like to make a contribution or learn about how to include COC in your estate or giving plans, contact Jake Keegan, finance director, at 641-628-8087, ext. 1109. Your gift will qualify for a tax deduction under the IRS and State of Iowa regulations for 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporations. Please contact COC for more information.
