Monday, September 01, 2014

The Alpharetta First United Methodist Endowment Fund is established for the purposed of providing members and friends the opportunity to make charitable gifts to AFUMC that will become an endowment of finanicial support and a living memorial. The fund is not established to support the annual budget of the church.

The purpose of the AFUMC Endowment Fund is
  • To encourage gifts, bequests and trusts, memorials, and other special gifts from members of AFUMC.
  • To use the income from investments of unrestricted gifts to provide continuing financial support for the benefit of this congregation and any of its missions.
  • To provide a means for members and friends of AFUMC to make future nd lasting gifts to support the work of the Church.

Giving is a faith Legacy; a way to lay up our treasures in heaven. The AFUMC Endowment Fund seeks to glorify our heavenly father by providing a means for the body of Christ on Earth to support the missions, ministries and members of the AFUMC family now and for generations to come.
