Our Church can last – forever?

Endowment programs for United Methodist churches across Oklahoma are chartered to provide members and friends opportunities to make lasting charitable gifts.  These gifts will become permanent financial support and a living memorial. 

Many endowment programs are intended for purposes that are not part of established programs funded through the annual operating budget.

Your gifts to your church’s endowment fund push the mission of your church far into the future.  Through your gifts, you can leave a lasting legacy of your life, or that of a parent, child or other loved one, while at the same time helping to endow the ministries of your United Methodist church, ministry or institution.

Gifts to your church’s endowment program can be designated by you to fund a specific ministry or left undesignated to meet future needs.  Through your generosity, your church’s ministry of service can secure the future for tomorrow’s youth and adults.

To learn more about how to start or promote your church’s permanent endowment fund, contact the Oklahoma United Methodist Foundation at 800-259-6863, or visit them on the web at www.okumf.org.
