“A generous person will be enriched…” - Psalm 11:25

Purchasing a new life insurance policy or revising an existing one to make the church the beneficiary is a great way to make a generous gift. As an added benefit, when you name the church as the owner and beneficiary, all premiums will qualify as tax-deductible contributions. After you pass away, the death benefit that is paid to the church can be used to fund a ministry or mission that is important to you. For more information on life insurance gifts, contact the Georgia United Methodist Foundation at 770-449-6726, 877-220-5664 or or visit
