The Session of the LNPC established the Planned Giving Committee (PGC) to administer the Church’s programs regarding special gifts to the LNPC Endowment Fund and/or the Memorial Fund. These assets are managed through due diligence and prudence. If you would like to become a member of this committee, please contact the chairman.
Planned Giving – A Lasting Legacy
The Endowment and/or Memorial Funds were established to provide opportunities for members and friends of the LNPC to leave a lasting and visible legacy. This allows individuals opportunities for giving to the work of the Church through gifts, annuities, assignment of life insurance, and transfer of property (cash, stocks, bonds, real estate, etc.) This can be as an endowment to the church or in the form of a memorial gift in the name of an individual. As the PGC, we seek to encourage, receive, and administer these gifts in an orderly manner consistent with Session approved policies of this congregation.
Through Planned Giving, members of LNPC have an opportunity to donate to the Endowment Fund and/or the Memorial Fund. You can support the church for many years to come using a portion of your estate to continue God’s work at LNPC. There are three primary ways to support the church:
- Direct gift or bequest to the Operating Fund
- Bequest to the Memorial Fund
- Gift or bequest to the LNPC Endowment Fund.
The Endowment Fund is unique because it is a perpetual fund and it allows you to specify how the income from the investment is to be used. To learn more about the Endowment Fund, follow this link.
The Memorial Fund is a gift in the name of an individual or family, and is used to beautify the church or grounds, with appropriate recognition for the donor.
Subsequent to meeting with the PGC, we will discuss whether you have met with an estate planner (attorney and/or CPA) to help identify the gifts that meet your individual and family wishes. This may include a will or a trust, and powers of attorney.
