Endowment Fund

Bethany’s Endowment Fund is a unique opportunity to share the many gifts which God has entrusted to you and your family. The board-directed fund serves to receive bequests, planned gifts, and other special gifts, and to help those gifts accumulate and grow through investment. The income earned is used to support the mission and ministry of our congregation and the Christian Church.  Including Bethany in your planning means your stewardship will give again and again, year after year.

How You Can Make A Gift

You can continue to be a part of Bethany Lutheran’s mission into the future by making a gift to the Endowment Fund. Your gift may take any of the following forms:

  • Wills or bequests
  • Trusts
  • Life insurance benefits
  • Annuities
  • Securities
  • Real estate
  • Cash

A member of the Fund committee will be more than willing to explain in detail these and other ways you can participate.  Planned gifts, in many instances, may also benefit you financially while you live
