“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 and United Methodist Ministries. An endowment is a gift that can be invested to support church and ministry programs such as missions, scholarships, or buildings maintenance. Not only does the church or ministry benefit from a planned gift, but you, the donor, can receive tax benefits and the blessings of providing ongoing support to your church or favorite ministry.
