Enduring Gifts

picture-1.gifThere was great interest and enthusiasm for the presentation on Enduring Gifts by the Rev. Herb Gale following worship on Sunday, January 25. Herb made us think and touched our heart through his personal stories about how special gifts and bequests can transform a congregation’s ministry, and what sort of tax benefits there are for the donor.

Just how easy is it to leave an enduing gift? Check out the Planned Giving offices of The Presbyterian Church in Canada. Examples include:

* Gift Annuities
* Gifts of Life Insurance
* Publicly Traded Securities
* Wills and Bequests

The newly formed Stewardship Team of Guildwood Church is already at work developing terms of reference on how such gifts will be used when they are received by the congregation. For more information, contact our church office.
