A Living Memorial- A Loving Tribute
Established in the 1990’s, the St. Pauls’ Foundation offers a secure place for you to make gifts that will be invested for the future of the church. The principal generates interest income that can be used for many years. Deeply rooted in Christian heritage, the foundation exists because of St. Pauls’ UMC members and other friends of the church who wish to perpetuate the strength and witness of the church during and even beyond their lifetime.
Your gift may establish or add to a permanent endowment fund, selected by you. Your designated gift becomes a part of an irrevocable trust, with only the income being utilized.
Not only can you give to the fund using your own name, but you may also donate in honor or in memory or another person or to give special attention to a worthy cause within the church. Such a gift may be given directly by you or can be designated for the church in a will.
Your money is in good hands. Your investment is handled with care and expertise so that a good return is assured. Investment opportunities are investigated and monitored by a qualified Board of Directors.
Your gifts to St. Paul’s are afforded the maximum tax deductibility.
Your Giving Options
Gifts to the unrestricted fund offers the greatest flexibility in meeting the growing needs of the church and community. Unrestricted funds will be used where money is needed most, such as to start a new program, to help with charity, or to maintain the church facility.
You may also specify a gift for the ministry or church activity that means the most to you or a loved one. The designated funds list is available on request from the church office so that you may decide how best to designate your money. You could even create and name a new fund to which grants are to be distributed when you place your gift with us.
