“For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” – Matthew 18:20

Support the church AND get income for life
If you are interested in making a significant gift to the church but have worries about funding your retirement, consider a deferred gift that offers income for life. Charitable trusts can provide the church or your favorite charity with a significant gift after your life and/or the life of your spouse. It is a great way to give an income producing asset, yet continue to receive a stream of income while fulfilling your desire to make a contribution to the church. For more information on how life income gifts could work for you, contact the Georgia United Methodist Foundation at 770-449-6726, 877-220-5664 or or visit
