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.

How a Bargain Sale Works

  1. You sell The Free Methodist Foundation (for the benefit of your favorite Free Methodist ministry) your property for a price less than fair market value.
  2. You receive the cash from the sale and a charitable deduction for your gift to Foundation the Free Methodist ministry of your choice (the difference between the market value and purchase price).
  3. While you may owe some tax on the amount you receive from the sale, the charitable deduction from your gift could offset your taxes this year.

Benefits of a Bargain Sale

If you are considering selling your property, a bargain sale will help you meet all of your goals.

  • Avoid capital gains tax on your charitable gift.
  • The deduction from your gift will give you valuable tax savings that may reduce your tax bill this year.
  • With the cash received from the sale, you may then reinvest to create more income for your future.
  • Best of all, your gift will help the Free Methodist ministry of your choice further its work.
