Easy Ways to Support the Causes You Care About


More than ever, people are searching for something to make their lives better. While winning the lottery or a trip to a casino might provide the illusion of striking it rich, the reality is these schemes rarely work.

You can find great joy and meaning in supporting the causes you care about. What causes are most important to you?

You may be surprised to learn just how easy it is to partner with the Oklahoma United Methodist Foundation and help us fulfill the important work of your church or favorite ministry. All of the ideas below are ways you can help support the causes you care about while benefitting yourself and your loved ones.

Your IRA

Consider naming your church as a beneficiary of your IRA. All or a portion of your IRA can pass automatically to us and help further the mission of your church. It’s easy to call your IRA administrator and ask to change or add beneficiaries to your account. Many account providers now permit you to make beneficiary designations online.

Life Insurance

Support your favorite ministry by designating it as a beneficiary of a new or unneeded life insurance policy. Making this charitable gift is as easy as contacting your policy provider to complete a beneficiary designation form.

Checking, Savings, and Investment Accounts

One of the easiest ways to help your cherished cause is by naming the ministry or church as a "POD" (Payable on Death) beneficiary of one or more of your financial or investment accounts. By completing a simple document, you can gift any unused funds in your accounts to support your cherished cause.

It’s easy (and costs you nothing today) to support your church or favorite cause! If you are interested in finding out more, or would like to get started with supporting the causes you care about, get in touch with us! Call or email David Battles at 800-259-6863 or dbattles@okumf.org.
