How We Serve
The Columbia Union Revolving Fund (CURF) is a separate, nonprofit corporation affiliated with the Columbia Union Conference. CURF shares the Seventh-day Adventist gospel mission and advances this mission through cost-effective financing for churches, schools, conferences, and other denominational entities within the eight-state territory served by the Columbia Union. Over the last five years, CURF approved some 279 loans totaling over $101.5 million.
CURF makes loans to Seventh-day Adventist affiliated churches, schools and other denominational institutions located within the Columbia Union territory for the purpose of construction, acquisition, renovation and other capital improvement projects, or to satisfy temporary operating capital requirements. The Revolving Fund raises the funds used in making those loans by selling Demand Promissory Notes only to members and organizations of the Seventh-day Adventist Church who reside in the states and jurisdictions comprising the Columbia Union territory.
CURF is not offering notes, and will not sell notes, to residents of any state other than Maryland, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Delaware, Virginia, New Jersey, West Virginia, and the District of Columbia (the “Territory”). The posting of information on this website does not constitute an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy any securities. No sales of notes shall be made in any state until the offering has been registered and declared effective, or the sales are exempt from registration, and an offering circular has been delivered to the investor prior to such sale.
About Peggy Lee
Peggy Lee was born in Texarkana, Ark., but her family moved to Dallas, Texas, when she was 12. After graduating from Forest Lake Academy (Florida), she moved to the Washington, D.C., area to work in the General Conference Education Department. While completing a Bachelor of Science at Columbia Union College (Takoma Park, Md.), she worked for the Columbia Union Conference Education Department and Washington Adventist Hospital (Takoma Park, Md.).
After spending 17 years raising her family, Lee spent six years as treasurer for John Nevins Andrews Elementary School (Takoma Park, Md.). In 1980, she returned to the Columbia Union as secretary to treasurer Donald Russell, who oversaw the Columbia Union Revolving Fund, a small entity with only $3 million. In 1992 when the Revolving Fund was incorporated separately from the Columbia Union Conference, she was elected treasurer and assistant secretary, and later secretary/treasurer. Today, the Revolving Fund has $163.5 million.
Lee was married to Donald L. Lee (deceased) and they have two daughters and two grandchildren.
