 The RUMC Foundation Celebrates the Addition of its Newest Endowment!

The KBE Endowment

The Foundation welcomes our newest endowment, KBE Endowment.  This endowment was established in honor of a beloved wife and mother.  Why KBE? KBE are the initials of the endowment’s honoree and serves a tribute to her  and her entire family.  This fund will support the scholarship and special needs education expenses for the Roswell United Methodist Church Preschool and Kindergarten.

The Harry L. Hall Scholarship Fund was established in 2008.  This fund was established to honor a man who was dedicated to education and active in the life of the church for years.  His wife, Yvonne, established this endowment in his honor which has helped many RUMC members achieve their dream of higher education.

 Can You Make a Gift to the Church Tax-Free From Your IRA? YES!!!

In late 2015, legislation was passed that makes IRA charitable rollovers a permanent option for anyone who meets the following criteria:

– You must be 70 1/2 years or older at the time of your gift

– The transfer must go directly to the charity or charities (such as The RUMC Foundation, Inc.!) of your choice

– The total IRA gift amount cannot exceed $100,000

Such gifts are free from federal income tax each year and count toward IRA required minimum distribution amounts for the year of the gift. Please check with your IRA administrator or your tax advisor for more information.
