FOUNDATING GIVING

Our Foundation is a perpetual fund (endowment) established by the church to ensure lasting gifts to this congregation will bless generations to come.  The objective of our Foundation is to conserve the principal and make use only of the income from investment.  The income can only be expended for authorized purposes outside of the church's Annual Operating Budget.  With your help, we can enrich the lives of our congregation and community for years to come.

WHY DO WE NEED A FOUNDATION?

An established and growing church faces increasing demands for the proper upkeep of the church properties.  An adequate Foundation Fund can assist in meeting these demands.  It can relieve the pressure placed upon the Operating Budget and provide more funds for the church to move forward in programming, missions, and spiritual growth.  By having income available for special needs or unforeseen problems, the Foundation Fund is a key component of our church's financial well being.
When you participate in this endowment program, you may realize significant tax benefits and/or savings to estate costs.  Gifts to the FUMC Foundation can be made in many ways:
  • Direct contribution to the Fund
  • Through wills and legacies
  • Honorariums and memorial gifts
  • Gifts of real property
  • Gifts of Marketable Securities
  • Gifts of Life Insurance
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts
