The endowment program was established as a long-term way to invest in future generations of Linworth UMC worshipers. Whether we give through an estate plan, a special gift, or as part of our regular giving, the endowment funds provide a way for future disciples to carry on the work of the Lord. The principal from donations to these funds is held permanently, and only a percentage of its market value is distributed annually.
The endowment program is intended for purposes that are not a part of the church’s programs which are funded through the annual operating budget. Donations may be directed to one of three categories:
- Missions Fund (for missions in and beyond the local church community)
- Property Fund (for improvements, additions to, or construction of physical facilities)
- General Fund (for special needs and ministries determined by the church leadership)
Gifts of $500 or greater may be recognized with an engraved leaf on the Endowment Tree. Gifts of $5,000 or greater may be recognized with an engraved rock beneath the tree.
If you have any questions about donating to an endowment fund, email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Sponsored Worship Gifts
At our church, we offer the opportunity for individuals or families to sponsor worship gifts such as bread and water and altar flowers that enhance our worship experience.
These sponsored gifts not only add beauty and meaning to our worship services, but they also provide a way for individuals to honor loved ones, celebrate special occasions, or express their gratitude for blessings received.
Sponsoring a worship gift is a meaningful way to participate in our community and to share in the joy and blessings of worship with others.
If you are interested in sponsoring a worship gift, please contact our church office for more information on how to get involved.
Gifts & Memorial Fund
The Gifts & Memorial Fund provides members and friends of Linworth UMC with opportunities to make gifts that can provide immediate financial support for LUMC programs and ministries outside the annual operating budget and the regular giving of its members. Donations to the Gifts & Memorial Fund are typically made in recognition of someone meaningful to you or to memorialize someone who has passed away.
If you wish to memorialize someone in perpetuity, please consider a gift to the Linworth UMC Endowment Fund as an alternative.
