The Fredericksburg UMC Foundation is established to provide a means through which enduring charitable gifts will become a living memorial and a perpetual source of financial support to benefit the church and its programs. It is the vehicle for receiving and managing gifts that look to the future and enhance the ability of the church to promote its ministries and care for its property.
Therefore, as we build our fund, we gain more income from our investments to use in the programs and needs of the church.
Think always to write your memorial gifts to the FUMC Foundation and as you plan your charitable giving this year and next, consider making the FUMC Foundation one of your tax deductible gifts.
Remember that this charitable gift will never be spent but perpetually earn money for the benefit of doing God’s work and YOUR CHURCH.
Grants are requested each year in October to support the missions of the church and related charitable organizations. This year we funded the following grants: All grant requests received from the church were funded and that enabled us to grant some community requests.
