“Just as we can continue giving to the people we love after we’re gone, we can keep giving to the work of Christ. We too often overlook this aspect of stewardship, but it’s that simple—and that important.”
Glenn R. Palmberg
Evangelical Covenant Church
Legacy Planning and Stewardship
Both current and legacy charitable gifts are part of our stewardship of what God has entrusted to us. Our current gifts to ministries we love help maintain their daily operations, but may not have much impact on the future.
Even if we cannot afford large gifts during lifetime, a legacy gift from our estate can be significant. These gifts can continue our involvement with ministry long after current gifts have ceased, and can fund special projects or programs that may be close to our hearts.
A good legacy plan includes:
YOU…thoughtful planning helps you identify and achieve your personal financial goals and objectives, plus giving you peace of mind.
YOUR FAMILY…a financial and estate plan that is fully developed and kept current enables you to provide for your family in case of disability or death.
YOUR CHARITABLE DREAM…your vision for the Covenant ministries you care about, and how you might help ensure their future.
