William Rivers Memorial Endowment Fund

The William Rivers Memorial Endowment Fund was established as a Division of Overseas Ministries permanent fund in 1997 by Mrs. Jean Rivers, the widow of William Rivers. 

Because of the keen interest and professional experience of William Rivers in the field of education in agriculture, the main purpose of the William Rivers Memorial Endowment Fund is to promote agricultural education and development in settings around the world that are in the most need. Fund distributions from the William Rivers Memorial Endowment Fund are allocated in their entirety, to global partner churches for their work in these areas.
