In October 2017, the St. Matthew United Methodist Church Endowment Fund was

officially established with the United Methodist Foundation in Springfield, Illinois. The purpose
of this Endowment Fund is to raise and invest monies to accomplish the long-range plan
objectives of the church. All gifts to the Endowment Fund will be properly and timely invested
with the United Methodist Foundation, and all Endowment Funds will be reviewed by our
church’s Endowment Committee. As you think about how the Lord has blessed you over the
years through this church, we encourage you to consider giving to the St. Matthew United
Methodist Church Endowment Fund to ensure that St. Matthew continues to be a blessing to
others for many years to come!


If you have a question about the Endowment Fund or would like to make a contribution to the Endowment Fund, please contact Pastor Jon at the church office at (618) 397-5994 or by email at .


Do you have stocks, bonds, mutual funds or other assets that have appreciated in value?

Did you know that if you gift them directly to your church that you will receive a significant charitable tax deduction and avoid paying capital gains taxes?


For Example:

You purchased 100 shares of ABC stock for $10 many years ago. It is now worth $100 per share. You gift it to the church and receive a charitable tax deduction for $10,000, saving you $2,000 in income taxes (based on a 20% tax bracket.) AND, you avoid capital gains tax---$9,000 of capital gains X 20% tax rate = $1,800 in tax savings.


So, don't see that stock-gift it directly to the church.


Talk to your pastor about this opportunity of making a significant gift for ministry and save a bundle in taxes at the same time!
