Carey would like to continue to expand and grow its endowment base, with Chair endowments, fund enhancement and new endowments to focus on expanding ministries. Carey would also welcome other smaller but directed funding possibilities such as support for the Centre for Spiritual Formation, growing our On-line distance education potential, and our Chinese ministry program.

Ministries that we currently engage in are constantly in need of ‘just a little bit more money” and so smaller fund amounts that can be pooled and focused, are of great value to the college. Assistance in resourcing the churches, participation in lay focused courses, gathering stakeholders together and the constant technology pressures.

Carey has a piece of land (Lot 42) on which to expand if planning costs and project financing are attained. There is the potential for 35,000 to 40,000sq ft of building on lot 42 and an additional 20,000 ft on lot 41. This plot of land is valued at approximately $7-10 Million.

Carey always welcomes any gifts towards the operations budget of the ministry.
