Your legacy gift supporting the long-term health of the church can take many forms. Depending on your financial situation and the significance or complexity of your legacy gift, consulting with your lawyer or financial advisor is often a good idea. Including the church in your will is quite common, or consider adding a codicil to your existing will. Listing the church as a beneficiary of your IRA can be an easy and tax efficient option. Charitable Remainder Trusts and other lesser-known options can be good choices for some.
The Endowment Fund was established in order to make possible those programs and projects that are beyond the scope of the annual operating budget. The Endowment Fund has enabled many past projects and building improvements. Donations to the Endowment Fund can be made by anyone at any time (see “Giving by Check” above). Historically, most contributions to the Endowment Fund have come as a result of bequests, i.e., people who have included the church in their will or estate plan.
If you’ve included the church in your will or estate plan, please let the church know and we’ll include you as a member of the church’s Red Granite Legacy Society.
