G I V I N G

From the beginning —whether supporting missions, establishing our first Sunday school class, building an inspiring music program or welcoming an increasingly diverse church family—members of this congregation give generously of their time with generosity, humility and passion.

Rooted in our faith, our congregation’s vital investment supports our church home, our music ministry, our education and engagement programs.

 

THE ENDOWMENT PROGRAM

Presbyterian church jacksonville

What is an Endowment Program?

Our Endowment invites members and friends of this congregation to practice faithful stewardship by strengthening the ministries of our congregation and the larger church in perpetuity.  A gift to the Endowment Fund will bear fruit to the glory of Jesus Christ for many years to come.

Why Do We Need It?

Our Endowment expands Christ’s mission and enhance our campus through gifts above and  beyond the normal
operating budget of the church.

How Can You Participate?

The best fit is one that is appropriate to your interests and circumstances.  Gifts of all sizes are important.  Consider cash, securities, real estate, or other assets.  These gifts may provide donor benefits such as income tax deductions, estate tax deductions, and avoidance of capital gains taxes.

When you make a planned gift to the Geneva Endowment Fund, you are planting seeds that can make a real difference in the life of the church and lives of people now and for years
to come.

We invite you to become a member of the Legacy Partnership, created to honor and recognize people who help to continue the ministry and mission of Geneva through a planned gift.

There are several ways to become a Legacy Partner:

  • Direct gifts to the Endowment Fund
  • Bequest and wills
  • Gifts of life insurance
  • Make The Endowment Program the recipient of your IRA
  • Real estate and personal property
  • Other (consult your financial advisor)
