The RUMC Foundation Celebrates the Addition of its Newest Endowments!
The 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. We thank the donor for the incredible support.
The Beverly Wilson Memorial Endowment for Missions
This endowment was established through the generosity of Beverly Wilson, a longtime member of RUMC. This fund will support missions. We recognize Mrs. Wilson for her amazing contribution and appreciate her family’s support with establishing this endowment.
The Dennis and Chris Love Endowment
Longtime RUMC members, Dennis and Chris Love, have worked towards establishing an endowment for the last couple of years by designating an IRA with the Foundation as sole beneficiary. The endowment is funded through the IRA’s minimum required distributions (MRDs) and will continue to add to it annually. While the tax benefits are appealing, the Loves also wanted to witness their Christian Legacy in Action firsthand. This fund will support the Worship Arts Ministry of Roswell United Methodist Church. We thank Dennis and Chris for their generous support.

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
