Perpetuate Your Annual Gift to the Church

Many of us give generously to the ministry and mission of Jesus Christ through First United Methodist Church of Gilford, and we assume our giving will continue as long as we live. But have you ever considered perpetuating your annual gift beyond your lifetime? You can do that very simply through a bequest.
By naming the church as a beneficiary in your will or trust, for a specific amount to be invested in the Endowment Fund, you can arrange to generate enough annual income to equal or exceed the amount of your present gift. Currently, our Endowment Fund is earning 3.75%.
So, for example, if you give $2,500 a year to the church (plus special offerings, etc), a bequest of $75,000 will produce an annual gift of $2,812—forever! Or, if you give $1,000 an-nually (plus special offerings, etc), a $30,000 bequest will guarantee an annual gift of $1,125—forever! Simply multiply the amount of your annual gift by 30. Then consider a bequest in that amount.
By naming the church in your will or trust, you can maintain your support of the minis-try and mission of Christ in future generations as FUMCG continues to serve the Lakes Region and the world in His Name.
