Legacy Giving Through Endowments

Many donors like the idea of putting their gift to work to continue giving year after year, rather than just making a one-time gift. For these donors, we offer the option of giving through an endowment. The principal of an endowed gift is invested to provide current income and principal growth. A significant portion of the annual income is distributed to the ministry(ies) designated by the donor year after year into perpetuity.

The Free Methodist Foundation currently manages over 200 endowments totaling more than $19 million. In the past five years, over $2.6 million has been distributed to ministry by these endowments. Praise God!

If you are interested in giving to an endowment, we invite you to talk with us. You can give to a currently established endowment that benefits the ministry(ies) close to your heart, or you can set up your own endowment. Families often like to set up endowments to honor or memorialize loved ones. Gifts to endowments can be given during your lifetime, or as part of your estate.
