Types of Planned Gifts

Cash Gift or Pledge

You can make a cash gift or pledge, payable all at once or over a period of time, which continues your annual support, funds a specific program or initiative, or simply makes an unrestricted gift to support United Methodist Women.

Bequest or Estate Gift

You can designate United Methodist Women as a beneficiary to receive all, part or a percentage of the remainder of your estate after you provide for your loved ones.

Assets or Property

You can designate the total, portion or percentage of your home or property sale proceeds to United Methodist Women.

Appreciated Securities

Giving long-term appreciated stock is one of the most tax-advantaged ways to make charitable gifts. With careful planning, you can reduce or eliminate capital gains tax while supporting United Methodist Women.

Retirement Fund

You can designate United Methodist Women as a beneficiary to receive all or part of your retirement fund. Retirement funds are subject to both income and estate taxes (which can total up to 70 percent). Planned giving can help reduce this tax liability.

If you are age 70 ½ or older, you can consider making a direct transfer gift to United Methodist Women of up to $100,000 from the annual required minimum distribution of your individual retirement account (IRA).

Life-Income Gift

There are charitable gifts that provide income payments for life, that require special planning and careful consideration. Contact the Development Office for further information.

Endowment Fund

You can contribute to an endowment like the Legacy Fund that provides annual income in perpetuity to carry forward the mission of United Methodist Women.

Matching or Workplace Giving

Check with your employer (or former employer, if you are retired) to see if you can multiply your support to United Methodist Women through a matching gift or contribution through a workplace giving campaign.
