Your donation will count towards your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) for the year. Gifts must be made directly from your IRA to St. Matthew UMC, and can be any amount up to $100,000. You may designate your donation for either 2019 or 2020.

Plan for Your Legacy with a Future Gift:

There are several ways you can make a gift to St. Matthew in the future:

Bequests in your will are a simple way to name St. Matthew UMC as the recipient of a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate.  If you don’t already have a will, please consider writing one for the benefit of your family and entire estate.

Life Insurance Policies allow you to name your beneficiary and you can choose St. Matthew UMC as either the sole beneficiary or a partial beneficiary.  Life insurance can multiply the value of your gift.

Retirement Funds, like IRAs and 401ks, have named beneficiaries and you can name St. Matthew UMC as a sole or partial beneficiary.  Those funds aren’t subject to taxes when distributed to a non-profit.
