The Trinity Foundation was established in 1953 to encourage and administer charitable gifts to Trinity United Methodist Church.
Not financial gifts as in "annual giving" that support TUMC's operating budget - which is also important, but rather "planned giving" to the Foundation as an expression of our responsibility to return to God a portion of the material goods with which we have been blessed.

Though an awareness of the Foundation, what it does and how your gift - no matter how modest or how generous -
could benefit others, a gift to the Trinity Foundation in any amount and in any form can become a declaration of both your
faith and values
for now and for eternity.

The English evangelical clergyman, spiritual
leader and writer John Wesley (1703-1791)
founded Methodism. The Wesley Society
was established in his name for supporters
of Trinity UMC who include the Trinity
Foundation in their long-range financial
plans. By doing so, they may find tax
advantages to increase the value of their
estate, enabling them to do more than they
dreamed possible. The Society lists the
names of those who have informed us of
planned gifts for the purpose of encouraging
others while some members choose to keep
their decision confidential.
