Planned Gifts represent giving items such as assets, bequests, trusts, etc. as part of your overall personal finance strategy. It is suggested you consult with your CPA, attorney and/or financial advisor to determine a tailor made gifting option for you and your family. In the absence of such professional advisors, please call The Family Church at (352) 332-6459 for a referral to a church member advisor. 

According to The Giving USA Foundation 2016: The 2015 Annual Report on Philanthropy, donors gave a record setting $373 billion in 2015. More people donated than voted in the U.S! Individuals account for two-thirds of total giving. Religious donations represented 32% of all giving in 2015. These tax deductible gifts set record levels in 2014 and 2015. Through planned giving, you can balance your charitable goals along with your personal financial needs, all the while helping to accomplish the mission of The Family Church both now and in the future.

As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. 1 Peter 4:10

Winston Churchill said, “We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.” Through planned giving, you can help further the mission of our church to lead others in the discovery of Christ. Your generosity can be used in many ways to ensure the church’s mission “to help all people discover family in Christ.” Through your stewardship of God’s gifts, you can play a crucial role in spreading the good news of the Gospel locally and around the world to change the lives of others.


You can structure your planned gift giving with large or small tax deductible gifts thus effectively meeting the goals of The Family Church. Thank you for considering giving to the causes of Christ who gave it all that we would have an abundant life today, eternal life thereafter.
