You Can’t Take It with You . . .
But You Can Use It to Make a Difference

What is planned giving?

Planned giving is simply a charitable gift that is a part of your overall financial or estate plan. There are a number of simple ways to make a planned gift. We encourage you to talk to an attorney or financial planner about planned giving, and feel free to contact us with questions.

Where do I start?

We would love to support you through planned giving efforts; and we believe planned giving begins with whole-life stewardship. Start by going through our More than Money Bible study

My Legacy of Faith is a great web site that can help you as you begin planning. You can also contact the WMU Foundation office, and we will mail additional information to you.

Why Planned Giving?

Growing up in a home that emphasized missions both by spoken word and by actions, I quickly learned that my involvement in WMU organizations, beginning with Sunbeams, GA, and YWA was where I would learn to pray, give, and do missions. By investing in the work of the WMU Foundation, my husband Tommy and I are helping to ensure the future of WMU and how it shares the love of Christ through its organizations and projects. Won’t you join me in continuing the wonderful legacy of Woman’s Missionary Union by donating to the WMU Foundation?
