“One of the things I love most about Westminster is the thread of
generational connections woven into the fabric of our community. I think
of the gifts of time and talent over the years from so many members,
past and present, that have built the strong foundation of our ministry,
worship, and relationships with each other. I am grateful for their legacy
and the opportunity to continue it into the future.”

In addition to your campaign gift, we invite you to make a legacy gift. Legacy giving ensures the long-term sustainability of Westminster Presbyterian Church and
its ministries and mission. Through Legacy Gifts, the church can continue its ministry for future generations.
Legacy Gifts support our endowments and gifts can be made through a one-time gift, annual giving, or through an estate plan. There are several endowment funds from which to choose:
1. The Legacy Fund is a general fund endowment that provides unrestricted support. The proceeds generated from this endowment help fund the overall ministry of the church on an annual basis.
2. Mission Endowment provides annual support to mission projects of the church.
3. Youth Endowment provides annual support to youth programming of the church.
Supporting the endowment allows members to leave a lasting impact that reflects their values during their lifetime. Members may even decide to “endow” their annual pledge to the church! From generation to generation, your support will live in perpetuity to strengthen the church for today and for the future.
You can make an estate gift by naming the church as a beneficiary in your will or trust, life income agreement (e.g. charitable gift annuity or pooled income fund), charitable trust, retirement plan, life insurance policy, or life estate. Immediate gifts can also be made with appreciated securities, retirement funds, real estate or other assets.
Your legacy matters here!
