A new way to support the work of The Woodlands Methodist Church Foundation with an annual gift.

ABOUT THE FOUNDATION

The Woodlands Methodist Church Foundation was established in 2000 as a pillar of support to our ministry and mission of reaching people for Jesus, discipling them in faith, and helping those in need.

The Foundation is more than just a financial asset; it is a testament to our enduring dedication to faith, service and compassion. Established as a permanent fund, the principal amount of the endowment is preserved while the earnings generated from investments are distributed as scholarships and grants to support the mission of The Woodlands Methodist Church. This is distinct from the day-to-day operations budget and regular giving. The Foundation plays a pivotal role in funding new initiatives, missions, church multiplication, curriculum resources and education scholarships. Today’s gifts make an impact tomorrow and are invested forever for generations to come.

OTHER WAYS TO GIVE

GIFTS OF CASH/CHECKS

Simplicity and ease of giving make cash/check contributions the most popular type of giving.

GIFTS OF SECURITIES

Gifts of long-term securities generally result in several federal tax benefits. Please check with your tax advisor for more details.

GIFTS OF PROPERTY

Real property may also be given to the Foundation provided it meets certain criteria.

A PERSONAL WILL OR ESTATE PLANNING

In your will you may decide to bequeath a percentage of your estate, a specific amount or the remainders after bequests to other beneficiaries are made. If you choose to make a gift to the Foundation in this way, please note that the legal name to include in a will or other legal document is “The Woodlands Methodist Church Foundation.” A bequest will be recorded as a gift in the year that the will is probated and the grant delivered to the Foundation.

When a Christian writes a will, it should be more than a catalog of possessions, but rather a declaration of faith in the cause you believe in — a provision for that which you love. No person can tell you the will of God regarding the final disposition of your property. Only by prayerfully seeking God’s leadership can you know what He wants you to do.

CURRENT AREAS OF SUPPORT

The Foundation currently focuses on five major areas of investment that are in support of TWMC’s mission: New Initiatives, Missions, Church Multiplication, Christian Education and Resources, and Scholarships. Giving to the enduring ministry of The Woodlands Methodist Church Foundation has had a profound impact on many lives. Learn more below.

New Initiatives and Areas Most in Need

The Foundation provides support for emerging opportunities as they arise, allowing us to channel general giving projects and initiatives that align with our mission to reach people for Jesus, disciple them in faith, and help those in need.

Missions | Help Those in Need

Our commitment to missions extends across three key areas: local missions, international missions and student missions. Grants from the Foundation empower us to serve and support communities near and far, spreading God’s message of hope and love through hands-on mission work.

Church Multiplication | Reach People for Jesus Christ

As our church family grows, so does our need for space and resources. The Foundation provides funding for church multiplication efforts including campus expansion and initiatives for church growth, ensuring that we can continue to welcome and disciple new members.

Christian Curriculum and Resources | Disciple Them in Faith

We understand the importance of equipping both our congregation and other churches with the tools needed for spiritual growth. The Foundation supports the development of curriculum, resources for classes and studies, and the creation of materials that empower churches to thrive in their ministries.

Education Scholarships | Disciple Them in Faith

This is a powerful catalyst for personal and spiritual growth. The Foundation provides scholarships for pastors and seminary students, as well as financial assistance to students pursuing education at The Woodlands Methodist School. By investing in education, we invest in a brighter future.

“For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.” — Psalm 100:5

Most large churches, such as The Woodlands Methodist Church, have established foundations or endowment funds for the purpose of expanding and securing the future ministries of the church. The Foundation provides an opportunity for the current members to build for the future.

The Foundation fund is a permanent fund which is invested to provide income that can be used to further the ministry of the church. The permanent fund also provides a degree of security in the event of unforeseen financial needs. Most of the goals for the Foundation are long-term.

The mission of The Woodlands Methodist Church Foundation is to expand the ministry outreach of the church and safeguard its future through charitable gifts that provide long-term financial support and a living memorial.

They will be used to expand the ministry of the church for years to come by providing supplemental funds to enhance the church’s programs, mission, operations and facilities.

No, it does not replace other funds. Such funds as the church operating budget and faith promise fund for missions are separate. The Foundation fund is designed to permanently enrich the future life of our church.

The annual budget of our church is all-important. It is the responsibility of the congregation every year to provide for the everyday bills, salaries and programs for the membership.
