Mennonites believe that their Christian walk should reflect a life of love and charity for all people. This belief has help differentiated MCC’s work for almost 100 years. Currently MCC is working in 54 countries around the world. The impact that the organization is having in the lives of the world’s most vulnerable people is significant. And yet, the needs of the world seem to be never ending. The current refugee situations in the Middle East, Africa and elsewhere are reminders that MCC must continue to work to meet the physical needs of the poorest of the poor, while working for peace and justice for all.
MCC must continue to put these beliefs into action while at the same time take steps to build sustainable revenue sources that will help ensure the organization is well resourced for decades to come. In doing so, MCC can ensure that the next generation can share God’s love and compassion for all in the name of Christ.
The solution: MCC Legacy Trust.
MCC Legacy Trust was established to help MCC manage a unique opportunity. A donor’s gift of a significant property portfolio prompted MCC to establish this new entity to steward these donated resources. By developing and managing these properties to produces maximum income, MCC Legacy Trust is creating sustainable revenue sources that will help MCC BC fulfill its purpose.
The Board of MCC Legacy Trust has a larger vision however. Rather than establishing an entity to manage one portfolio of properties, MCC Legacy Trust has been built to help any donor interested in leveraging their property holdings to advance the mission of MCC. Legacy Trust has the capacity, the leadership, and the resources to succeed.
The Board of MCC Legacy Trust believes there are faithful men and women throughout BC who recognize that the assets they’ve accumulated over a lifetime of hard work, are not their own. These men and women recognize that they are trusted stewards of God’s resources and they are eager to find creative ways to use these resources to have a significant impact for the sake of His kingdom. Not for their own glory but in responses to God’s lavish generosity in their lives.
MCC Legacy Trust is well positioned to help these individuals fulfill this vision.
MCC Legacy Trust is also interested in building partnerships with real estate developers. MCC Legacy Trust has assets to reinvest in joint ventures that can be profitable for all involved. MCC Legacy Trust has the leadership and resources to be a valued partner.
MCC Legacy Trust is a strategic venture. Through the hard work and dedication of its Board, staff and supporters, MCC Legacy Trust is establishing a new chapter in the rich story of MCC and creating a legacy that will have an impact for generations
