Donations from CM CARES advance education for Black churches, communities

MERRILL, Wis. , February 22 /Businesswire/ - CM CARES, the Church Mutual Foundation, recently approved three donations that support efforts to advance Black churches and education in Black communities.

CM CARES has committed to making an annual donation of $10,000 for the next three years to the Thurgood Marshall College Fund. The donation will support TMCF’s Leadership Institute, one of the premier leadership development conferences bringing together carefully selected students from the 47 Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Predominantly Black Institutions.

Another 3-year, $30,000 commitment has been made to Duke Divinity School to help support the Black Pastoral Leadership Archive. The archive includes historical records of the largest and oldest global missions’ agency of African American heritage and the intellectual properties of three seminal Black pastoral leaders of the 20th century. This partnership will help strengthen Black churches, their ministers and the communities they serve.

CM CARES also will provide a $5,000 donation to help kick off the LFBright Scholars Program through Lilydale Baptist Church in Chicago, headed by the Rev. Alvin Love, a member of the Church Mutual Insurance Company, S.I. (a stock insurer)1, African American Pastors Advisory Group. The program’s mission is to create a strong pipeline of young, African American male college graduates who may excel in their careers, build wealth and become engaged leaders in their communities.
