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.

Leading for the Future

Leading for the Future

Luke and Candice spent many years volunteering and supporting their favorite Free Methodist ministry. They wanted to give back in a way that would help fulfill its mission. At the same time, they were looking for a way to care for their family in the future.

Luke: We heard that with new lower rates, now is the best time in years to set up a charitable lead trust. We could fund the trust with cash or stock and this trust would pay income to the ministry for a number of years with the rest of the trust value going to our children in the future.

Candice: We liked the fact that our children would be well cared for and that we could see the result now of our gifts to our favorite Free Methodist ministry.

Luke and Candice were also pleased to learn that taxes on the gift to their children would be significantly reduced by the added benefit of a gift tax charitable deduction. After the income was paid to the Free Methodist ministry of their choice, the remaining trust value would go to their family with very little tax owed.

Luke: Candice and I found that by using a charitable lead trust we could accomplish our goals of helping both family and our favorite Free Methodist ministry during our lifetimes.
