"Plan Ahead" & Year End Financial Gifts

The Missouri United Methodist Foundation has created a variety of new materials that make it easy to plan long-term giving to our church. We have placed these pdf brochures right here on our church website to help you think through your "plan ahead" financial gift to your church. You will find here, along with other information, a brochure for year-end giving. There's even a special brochure for farmers!

Charitable Gift Annuity
The Charitable Gift Annuity is a great way to benefit your favorite ministry. Fixed payments for you (or you and another person) for life. Then, the gift goes to the ministry you have designated.
IRA Charitable Rollover Gift
An IRA Charitable Rollover Gift allows persons over age 70 ½ to make gifts to our church directly from individual retirement accounts (IRAs) without including the distribution as personal income, but counting the gift toward the Required Minimum Distribution.  And there's no need to itemize!
Giving Securities
Giving Securities is a tax-efficient way to fund your favorite United Methodist Church or ministry. Donors may receive a reduction for the full market value of the securities while avoiding capital gains taxes
Remember Your Church
Check out the Remember Your Church Brochure.  It contains a simple suggestion that can make a huge difference in the long-term life of our congregation. Many folks have simply not thought about this type of gift to the church. An estate gift can be a meaningful culmination of a lifetime of devoted Christian discipleship and an inspiration to family and friends.
Donor Advised Funds
The Donor Advised Fund is a great way to manage charitable giving under the new tax rules.
Support your beloved church through a single fund.
Giving Grain
Giving Grain is a tax-wise way for farmers to give.
Estate Planning
Estate Planning is a practical, important tool that ensures: the people you care about receive your property; your property is distributed in the way you intend; expense, inconvenience and heartache for loved ones are minimized; taxes are minimized; your gifts to church and charity are honored.
Year End Giving
Read the Year End Giving brochure (especially the second page).  It offers some great giving options that benefit both you and the church.
