Planned Giving Through East Shore's Endowment Fund
The endowment fund was established in 1981 by several visionary members who wished to keep our church secure in the event of a severe financial crisis. They also wanted a way to fund equipment and program needs that fall outside our operating and capital budgets. The fund is invested in a diversified portfolio of equities and bonds and has been growing over the years. Our fund is professionally managed; the generous portfolio manager donates her services, keeping fund expenses less than 0.4 percent.
A planned gift focuses on future needs.
It will help secure the continuation of ministries, create new programs and outreach, provide improvements of church buildings, and more.
Benefits of planned giving
Planned giving will not affect your current lifestyle and will cost you nothing during your lifetime. Different types of planned giving can provide tax benefits under the current tax laws. Remember, you don't need to have a large estate or to be wealthy to make a significant contribution to our church.
Here are some examples of planned giving:
- Charitable Gift Annuity
- Charitable Remainder Trust
- Pooled Income Fund
- Gifts of Life Insurance
- Gifts of Real Estate
- Gifts of Will
