A Living Memorial – A Loving Tribute
Deeply rooted in Christian heritage, the St. Paul’s Foundation provides a permanent fund that generates investment income. The fund exists and grows because of gifts from St. Paul’s UMC members and friends who wish to perpetuate, during and beyond their lifetime, the strength and witness of the church.
Permanence Your gift may establish or add to a permanent endowment fund. Your designated gift becomes a part of an irrevocable trust with only the income being utilized.
Commemoration You may give to the Foundation in your name, memorialize another person, or draw attention to a charitable field by using its name.
Investment Expertise You are saved the time and the expense of investing and you are assured quality investment of your fund to produce a good return for your purpose.
Supervision Investment opportunities are investigated and monitored by a qualified Board of Directors.
Giving Options Unrestricted – You can benefit the congregation directly, by adding to the unrestricted fund. The fund is disbursed to offer great flexibility in meeting existing church and community needs.
