How the Foundation Can Help

Through your church's Legacy Sunday, you can teach your congregation about how they can give in creative ways to support your church's ministry and mission. The Foundation is available to partner with churches to help donors give both monetary and non-monetary gifts in creative ways such as charitable gift annuities, personal giving funds, trusts, endowments, bequests, and more.

Foundation representatives are available to speak with anyone in your church who wants to learn more about planned and deferred giving. You can also invite a representative to visit your church. Contact us at (913) 577-2983 or by filling out this form.
