January marks Foundation Month
Each year, January is recognized as Foundation Month throughout Oklahoma Annual Conference. The Foundation uses this time to create awareness of the need for proper estate planning.
Many people die without a will, which means they leave to the state important decisions about their life’s accumulation. It also means there will be no provision for their church and other ministries they found important.
A bequest is perhaps the easiest and most tangible way to have a lasting impact on the people and organizations that mean the most to you. A bequest may also be an effective way to make a gift and lessen the burden of taxes on your family or your estate.
Consider including a tithe of your will to benefit your United Methodist church. Your generosity will make a difference in ministry for generations to come.
The Foundation can provide more information on planned and estate gifts and permanent endowment funds. They have three planned-giving staff standing ready to help you plant the seeds of your legacy in your community and church.
Call Kristin at the Foundation, 800-259-6863, to request free bulletin inserts or more information about the Foundation to share with your congregation.
