RMD from IRAs
St. Mark’s can receive Qualified Charitable Distributions from your IRA and can be used to satisfy all or part of your Required Minimum Distribution. If this gift is to be used for anything other than unrestricted giving or to satisfy your current pledge, please do let us know. As always, we appreciate your generosity, and thank you for thinking of St. Mark’s when directing your RMD giving. Please contact Lois in the church office if you need additional information.
The endowment fund at St. Mark’s offers a powerful opportunity to ensure that the love and gratitude we feel for our church will endure. By contributing to the endowment fund, we can ensure that St. Mark’s will have the resources needed to continue its mission and ministries for generations to come. At St. Mark’s our endowment is structured so the principal amount is kept intact while the investment income is available to meet ongoing needs.
There are two primary ways to make a gift to one of the church’s endowment funds. First, you may make an outright gift to the endowment of cash, stock, or other liquid assets. Second, you may make a planned gift by designating a bequest in your will, establishing a life income gift (like a charitable annuity), or naming St. Mark’s as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy and directing any of these gifts to the endowment.
What is your favorite memory from St. Mark’s? A wedding? A baptism? Welcoming the youth back from their summer mission trip? The flowering of the cross during the Easter service? Holy Week, or Christmas Eve? Serving with one of the many ministries here?
Whatever is most important to you — you can ensure that the traditions live on and share those memories with others by contributing to our endowment fund.
