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.
