“What we have heard and know, what our fathers have told us. We will not hide them from our children; we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done.” — Psalm 78:3-4
Planned giving and permanent gifts are gifts that keep on giving, securing the financial future of the Church. An endowment is a gift that can be invested to support church ministry programs such as missions and scholarships or for buildings and maintenance. Not only does the church benefit from a planned gift, but the donor can receive tax benefits and the blessings of providing ongoing support to the ministry of the church.
Establishing an endowment through our estate plan is one way of showing that we care about the future of our church. You can give outright gifts of cash or planned gifts.
