Legacy Fund Information Dinner

Wednesday, April 24, 2024, 6pm

A church like ours is on a mission. It's not just about our work today - though that's why most of us do our giving. It's not even about our building that needs ongoing care. it's about creating a durable church foundation that's here for your grandkids' grandkids. This can be done by giving something extra to our Legacy Fund, a fund that can grow even as a portion of it is spent on mission-critical expenses. Join us for a Legacy Fund information dinner.

Leaving a lasting impact on their church is a goal for many people, often through donations to an Endowment Fund. Good Shepherd's congregation recently approved by law changes to our Endowment Fund language, creating a Legacy Fund. The changes were made to provide donors with maximum flexibility as they direct Good Shepherd in the use of their contributions. Our Legacy Fund is intended to provide donors with a tool to support good Shephard's ministries on a long-term basis. Please join us at Good Shepherd for dinner, fellowship, and information. Ben Boline, a Charitable Gift Planner with Thrivent, will join us to talk about his experience with Endowment/Legacy funds and to help answer questions.

RSVP to the church office by Wednesday, April 17, 2024
