Endowed Giving: FUMC Foundation
The FUMC Foundation, which was established in 1994, receives and administers endowed gifts to the church. The principal of these gifts remains intact with only the earnings being distributed at the direction of the Board of Directors and according to the donors’ instructions. The Foundation began with a gift of $50,000 and has grown to over $350,000.
How To Make A Gift
Here are a few ways to support the work of the Foundation:
- Bequest in a will
- Life insurance gift
- Retirement plan gift
- Real Estate
- Charitable gift annuity
Wisely planned gifts can produce tax savings and estate protection. The Foundation will be glad to discuss gifts to the First United Methodist Church via the Foundation with you. These matters are treated confidentially.
