Gaining Income and Giving to Trinity

Gaining Income and Giving to Trinity
Sixteen years ago, Naomi Fausch decided to contribute to Trinity's endowment. She had been involved in education for many years as a teacher, administrator, and curriculum consultant, and she wanted to give directly to the education of those unable to afford school otherwise.

Because of her lifelong interest in missionary work, when Naomi decided to invest in Trinity, she endowed not only an ongoing scholarship fund but also a faculty chair in missions, currently held by Dr. Harold Netland. Most recently she has contributed to Trinity through planned giving.

Why did she choose to invest so much in Trinity? "At Trinity I find the type of people I believe we should be sending all over the world-adaptable, able, very committed to Christ and the great work we are called to do for his kingdom," she says.

Through planned giving, Naomi benefits in practical ways, gaining a regular source of income that will last for the rest of her life. She also enjoys ongoing relationships with the students who receive her scholarship. "I've grown personally through my interaction with Trinity. My life has been enriched."

For more information about the benefits of planned giving, contact Trinity's Director of Planned Giving Ronald L. Tollerud, CFRE, at 847.317.7003, 800.445.8337, ext. 7003, or email plannedgiving@tiu.edu.
