Everence and MCC announce e-statement partnership
January 3, 2012
For each Everence member who participates in the company’s e-statement program, Everence will donate $1 to MCC’s reforestation projects worldwide. In turn, each dollar donated will purchase five tree seedlings.
“At Everence, we are committed to being faithful stewards of our environmental resources,” said Larry Miller, Everence president and CEO. “As an agency of Mennonite Church USA, it makes sense to partner with other church-related organizations, like MCC, to make an impact on our local and global communities.”
“Everence and Mennonite Central Committee share many values and constituents,” added Phil Rush, director of MCC’s Resource Generation Network. “This partnership gives Everence members a chance to further integrate their faith and finances by making a choice to reduce consumption of natural resources. In turn, the donations received by MCC through this program will help to restore God’s natural creation in various places around the world.”
The Everence e-statement program is available to individuals who own Everence annuities or Praxis Mutual Funds, as well as services through Everence Trust Company, Everence Federal Credit Union and Mennonite Foundation.
