The Endowment Program of the Michigan Council on Alcohol Problems was created on May 5, 2000. The program was established to create a perpetual fund to assist in fulfilling the mission of MICAP.

​ The Funds are administered by THE UNITED METHODIST FOUNDATION in Michigan, an agency of the United Methodist Church, with local administration the responsibility of the Executive Committee of the MICAP Board of Directors. ​

The Committee meets annually and other times as necessary to administer funds, in accordance with both the endowment policy and donor wishes. At least half of the income annually is used for MICAP projects.

​To maintain the integrity of the General Endowment Fund, up to half of the income earned annually is reinvested in the fund. Donors are able to designate their gifts if they wish to do so.

​ Contributions may be gifts or bequests of:

  • Cash
  • Certificates of Deposit
  • Real Estate
  • Stocks or Bonds
  • Life Insurance
  • Personal Property

​A gift to the Endowment Fund of MICAP assures lasting support for the mission of MICAP. Each gift is a lasting statement about a donor and the donor’s values in perpetuating the missions of MICAP and in addressing the issues associated with the use of alcohol in Michigan.

​Contributions to the fund are subject to Committee review and acceptance. This gives donors the knowledge that their gifts are administered in accordance with their wishes and beliefs.

The Michigan Council on Alcohol Problems is an IRS 501 (c) (3) charitable organization and all gifts are tax deductible in accordance with IRS regulations.
