Endowment Development and Education

Planned Giving Seminar

As you consider ways the Foundation can help with your church or agency’s ministry, contact the Foundation.

  • We can meet with any committee or Board within your church or agency structure that has questions about endowment creation, endowment building or the investment of reserve funds.  We travel, so call us.
  • We can help your ministry to develop a Gift Acceptance Policy, an Endowment Trust, or a Reserve Fund.

Once the church’s endowment fund is established, the Foundation can help to create an environment of legacy giving in a church.

  • Planned giving and estate planning seminars – Want to help your congregation consider the possibilities of planned giving?   The Foundation can lead church presentations on these subjects.
  • One on one meetings with individuals – The Development Staff of the Foundation can meet with individuals in your church who are exploring their options for legacy giving. 
  • Communication material – Contact the Foundation for help with designing brochures or informational flyers about planned giving and your church’s endowment.  We will also provide (free of charge) brochures about giving to the Church through the Foundation and the benefits of Year-End Giving.

The Foundation offers a Planned Giving Handbook, free of charge, to Churches and Ministries in the Annual Conference.  it is a step by step guide to creating a Church Endowment and building an environment to encourage planned giving.  Contact the Foundation to request your copy, or download the PDF at this link.
