Planned Giving


One way you can partner with Methodist Children’s Home is through planned giving. Planned gifts help ensure the future of this ministry. There are a variety of options that provide needed resources for the children, as well as provide income for life for the donor (and beneficiaries if desired) and potential tax benefits. Above all, there is the joy of a secure future for the children who need us.

Nearly 80% of our annual budget is funded by the earnings generated by our permanent endowment fund, which was established in the 1940s. We believe very strongly in raising new gifts for the permanent endowment fund since this is what allows us to expand our programs and open our doors even wider. All gifts made to this fund are invested, with only the earnings being used to care for the children today. The Home’s good stewardship of the endowment fund and other funds ensures we can care for children who will come to us in future generations.
