Planned Gifts Program

Did you know that there are many ways that you can give to Vestal UMC?  Giving to your church can go beyond your weekly or monthly tithing.  Our Planned Giving Program offer you several ways to remember your church.




To you:

  • Your Planned Gift affirms the relationship you have enjoyed with your Church.
  • Your Planned Gift continues your generosity and support in the future.
  • Your Planned Gift may help to avoid the disbursement of your assets to tax reviews or other obligations.
  • Your Planned Gift can insure ongoing support for areas of the church's mission and ministry in which you have a personal interest.

To the church:

  • Your Planned Gift allows the church to plan strategically for the future.
  • Your Planned Gift may sustain an area of the church's life now fully dependent on the annual budget process.
  • Your Planned Gift gives the church the freedom to respond to new and emerging needs.




The following vehicles are among those available which will make your Planned Gift a reality.  In any case you may wish to seek the counsel of your Financial Advisor or Attorney.


  • Life Insurance - name the church as your beneficiary of all or part of your Life Insurance Policy.
  • Bequest by Will - make provision in your will so that the church will receive a percentage of your estate, or a specific amount, at the time of your death.
  • Real Estate - transfer title of all or part of your Real Estate holdings to the church and continue to reserve lifetime use and occupancy.
    Trusts and Annuities - there are any number of methods to secure for the church in your Planned Gift, while at the same time not decreasing your income stream.




Our objective for the Planned Gifts Program is to secure a solid financial base for the well being and growth of our church.  To this end we are seeking your prayerful consideration in support of establishing an endowment of six hundred thousand dollars which would generate an annual income of equal to approximately twenty percent of our current annual budget.

Possible areas of designate gifts include, but are not limited to, The Building Maintenance Trust Fund, Music Ministries, Scholarships, Christian Education, Missions, New Acquisitions, Salaries and Benefits, Undesignated, etc.

Your every consideration is appreciated.  If you have any questions, please call the church and we will be happy to respond
