The Free Methodist Foundation supports the ministry of The Free Methodist Church — USA by providing a variety of stewardship services to Free Methodist ministries and families. These services include estate and gift planning. Our team of Christian professionals would love to speak with you and learn about your passion for your family and your favorite Free Methodist ministry — your local church or annual conference, one of our Free Methodist human service ministries, world missions and childcare, one of our educational institutions, or any other of our various ministries! We would consider it a privilege to explore creative and tax-wise ways you can provide funds for your family and these ministries during your lifetime and beyond. We firmly believe estate and gift planning can benefit everyone, whether you consider yourself poor or rich or somewhere in between. You may not think you have much, but by following God's lead with a willing heart, your gift may be just what a loved one or a ministry needs.

Charitable Gift Annuity

Are you looking for a secure source of fixed income for now or your future? You may be tired of living at the mercy of the fluctuating stock and real estate markets. One solution is a charitable gift annuity.

How it Works

A charitable gift annuity is a contract between you and The Free Methodist Foundation, to eventually benefit the Free Methodist ministry of your choice.

  • You transfer property to The Free Methodist Foundation, for the benefit of the Free Methodist ministry of your choice. In exchange we pay you fixed income for life.
  • The fixed income can be quite high depending on your age.
  • A portion of your income stream may even be tax-free.
  • You will receive a charitable deduction for your gift of the remainder to the Free Methodist ministries of your choice and the satisfaction of furthering our mission.

Types of Assets You May Give

  • If you decide to fund your gift annuity with cash, a significant portion of the annuity income will be tax-free.
  • You may make a gift of your appreciated securities to fund a gift annuity and avoid a portion of the capital gains tax.

Start Receiving Payments Now with a Current Gift Annuity

If you desire current income, you may transfer property in exchange for our promise to pay you fixed income beginning as early as this year. You will receive a current income tax charitable deduction for the value of your gift to The Free Methodist Foundation Foundation for the benefit of the Free Methodist ministry of your choice.

Deferred Gift Annuity for Income at Future Date

Perhaps you are not ready to begin receiving income until a future date, such as when you retire. You can establish a deferred gift annuity, receive a current charitable income tax deduction and receive payments at a designated future time. Best of all, because you deferred your payments, your annual payment will be higher than with a current annuity.
