Community UMC Planned Giving Program and Endowment Fund

Did you know that you can give to Community United Methodist Church in a variety of ways; not just through tithing and Sunday morning plate offerings, but in creative ways that allow you to use your assets in addition to income? Thanks to our Endowment Fund, Community UMC members can make charitable contributions to the church in just the same way they might donate to any other charity. Your gift may be made in many different ways including, appreciated securities, beneficiary designations, bequest in your will, personal property, life income plans such as charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts.
Leaving Your Legacy
A planned gift to the endowment fund will help ensure that the ministries that have meant the most to you in your lifetime will continue into the future. You do not have to be wealthy to give. With planned giving, you decide what to give and how to give it. Many planned gifts offer certain advantages to both the donor and the church. You may designate your gift to benefit a certain ministry area or make an undesignated gift that can be used by Community UMC for a variety of future needs. Any gift to the endowment fund will help Community UMC continue to offer the ministries that take the love of God to our community and membership. What a wonderful way to use a portion of your assets to continue to support Community UMC’s work for God’s kingdom even after you can no longer do so yourself.

The Florida United Methodist Foundation is a wonderful resource available to consult with you about your interest and desire to establish a planned gift for your church.
