We provide a full continuum of practical consultations focused on helping faithful people build a better future. We help create planned giving programs, stewardship programs, and facilitate endowment development. These services are offered at no charge to local churches as part of our ministry.

Help Accepting
Gift Securities

The Foundation can assist donors in making non-cash gifts to their local churches. Our brokerage managers can expedite the receipt of contributions such as gifts of stocks, bonds, and mutual funds – all on your behalf. We handle the receipt and sale of the securities and then deposit the proceeds with those missions and ministries that have been designated, as well as providing acknowledgement for the donor.


We serve as the primary financial stewardship consultants to the West Ohio Conference United Methodist Churches. We provide on-site consultations with experienced practitioners who come alongside church leaders to help them fulfill the church’s purpose and vision.

Legacy Giving

Our planned giving seminars encourage the joy of generous giving. We focus on all aspects of a comprehensive estate plan with a wide range of planned gifts, including legacy gifts, charitable gift annuities, donor advised funds, and charitable trusts.


Endowment Development
and Promotion

Healthy congregations are receiving a growing portion of operating income from endowment earnings. The Foundation staff provides direction in establishing best practices for endowment funds in addition to offering value-aligned, competitive investment services.
