Michael Peeler/Virginia Casey Funds
The Michael Peeler Fund was established in 1955 under the will of Michael Peeler, a Salisbury businessman and member of St. John’s, Salisbury. The income gifted to the North Carolina Synod was “to be used by the synod each year wherever it is needed most for the advancement of the Kingdom of God.”
The Virginia Casey Fund was established in 2007 by a gift from the trust of Virginia W. Casey. Mrs. Casey was a native of Davie County and member of Gloria Dei, Salisbury. She served the NC Synod as secretary to former bishops Whittecar and Misenheimer. Mrs. Casey asked that the gift to the synod “be used to glorify God and promote the work of the Church,” with an emphasis on identifying and equipping leaders; and reaching out to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ in a changing world.
