Endowing the future
Their commitment to peacemaking and the global church led Dalton and Beverly Reimer to create three endowments for the Fresno Pacific University Center for Peacemaking and Conflict Studies:
- The N.K. and Lydia Reimer Peace Education Endowment
- The Dalton and Beverly Reimer Peace Education Endowment
- The George and Eva Vogt Peace Education Endowment
"Peacemaking was blessed by Jesus, and it has been a privilege already to see the fruit from these contributions to the university's Center for Peacemaking endowment funds," said Dalton.
These endowments support the center's international peace education program, which has provided graduate education in peacemaking to college teachers and church leaders from Brazil, Columbia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, India, Lithuania and Vietnam.
Endowments may be funded in a variety of ways. The Reimers chose gifts of inherited real estate, donations from family members and a contribution from an IRA.
