PLANNED GIVING HANDBOOK
“Dearly beloved, the Church is of God and will be preserved to the end of time . . . .”
Three-year pledges for a capital fund drive is a beginning
A way to give that establishes a source for future funding
Local boards of trustees
and Endowment committees
recommend fund policies
Charge Conference approves establishment of the fund
Why an Endowment Fund ?
1 ½ to 2 % of UMs die each year
Yet very few of our UM churches receive planned gifts on regular basis
Inheritances over next 50 years
Estimate 10% to religious institutions
Good planned giving program crucial
Invite a representative
from your regional United
to meet with you
“. . . Church will be preserved to the end of time.”
