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.

Gift of Retirement Assets

A gift of your retirement assets, such as a gift from your IRA, 401k, 403b, pension or other tax deferred plan, is an excellent way to make a gift to your favorite Free Methodist ministry.

If you are like most people, you probably will not use all of your retirement assets during your lifetime. Make a gift and help further the mission of your favorite Free Methodist ministry.

Leave your retirement assets to us

Did you know that 50%-60% of your retirement assets may be taxed if you leave them to your heirs at your death? Another option is to leave your heirs assets that receive a step up in basis (such as real estate and stock) and give the retirement assets to The Free Methodist Foundation for the benefit of the Free Methodist ministry of your choice. As a charity, we are not taxed upon receiving an IRA or other retirement plan assets.

How to transfer your retirement assets

Your retirement assets may be transferred to The Free Methodist Foundation for the benefit of your favorite Free Methodist ministry by completing a beneficiary designation form provided by your plan custodian. If you designate The Free Methodist Foundation (for the benefit of your favorite Free Methodist ministry) as beneficiary, we will benefit from the full value of your gift because your IRA assets will not be taxed at your death. Your estate will benefit from an estate tax charitable deduction for the gift.
