WAYS TO GIVE
UMCA THEOLOGICAL COLLEGE
Guide to Giving
Your gifts in support of the annual operations of UMCA THEOLOGICAL COLLEGE make an important difference in the daily lives of our students - days filled with reflection, study, prayer, and growth. The Annual Fund is a key component of the overall development program at UMCA THEOLOGICAL COLLEGE and is a vital source of unrestricted operating funds. The Annual Fund allows the Seminary the flexibility of directing funds where its needs and opportunities are the greatest.
And this is most important at this critical moment in our history—with enrollment surging, and the introduction of new programs—we need a solid financial base to meet predictable increases in operating costs, to continue to attract the best and brightest faculty, to continue providing the scholarship aid so essential for deserving students, and to ensure our ability to adjust to changes that are as inevitable as they are unknown.
Consider joining one of Annual Giving Societies.
From time to time supporters inquire about ways to give “planned” gifts to UMCA THEOLOGICAL COLLEGE. Sometimes they are looking for ways to contribute through their wills or insurance policies, or retirement assets. And sometimes they are looking for ways to donate that will actually provide themselves with income during their lifetime. In recent years this has become a very popular way for donors to make charitable contributions. Planned giving provides you with creative ways of giving that may also help you meet your other financial objectives. Planned gifts can reduce current income taxes through a charitable deduction, increase retirement income through a retained income stream, and address your financial obligations while providing assistance to UMCA THEOLOGICAL COLLEGE. All charitable gifts are planned to some extent, but "planned giving," or as it is sometimes called "charitable gift planning,” refers to the process of making a charitable gift of one's estate assets to a nonprofit organization such as a charity or educational institution, that requires careful consideration and planning in light of the donor's overall financial and estate plan. Planned gifts include bequests, charitable gift annuities, gifts of stock or real estate, and more. Learn more about firstname.lastname@example.org
