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.
A gift of your appreciated real property (such as your home, vacation property, vacant land, farmland, ranch or commercial property) can make a great gift to your favorite Free Methodist ministry.
Gifts of Real Estate
Here are some of the benefits you may enjoy:
- Avoid paying capital gains tax.
- Receive a charitable income tax deduction.
- Leave a lasting legacy.
How you make a gift of real property
Your real property may be gifted to The Free Methodist Foundation (to benefit the Free Methodist ministry of your choice), by executing or signing a deed transferring ownership. You may deed part or all of your real property to The Free Methodist Foundation. Your gift will generally be based on the property's fair market value, which must be established by an independent appraisal.
Can you make a gift of mortgaged property?
Please contact us if the property you wish to give has existing debt or a mortgage. Check with us on the capital gains tax implications of your gift. You also may be interested in life income options.
