The Commemorative Funds Committee, under the supervision of the session, direct the investment and use of gifts given to each of three different funds.
Why are gifts given to the Memorial Fund?
To acknowledge someone's loss of a loved one or in gratitude for special events, such as a birthday or anniversary.
What are these gifts used for?
They serve to continue the enrichment of the service of the church, and funds are never used to support the annual operating budget.
Ways to contribute:
A bequest is a gift stipulated in a will or trust which is presented after the Donor dies.
A living gift, which could be cash, securities or property, is one that takes effect the moment the donor makes it. Several Life Income Plans are available which guarantee the donor life income or annuity, reduce or eliminate various taxes and provide eventual benefit to the Church.
Naming our Church as the beneficiary of an insurance policy enables you to make a large gift to the church at a relatively small outlay.
- Memorial Bricks. Donate a brick in memory of a loved one. $500 purchases a 4"x8" red brick and $1,000 purchases an 8"x8" red brick.
How do I make a donation to the Memorial Fund?
A check made out to FPCL Memorial Fund may be sent to the church office at 2020 Fifth Street, Livermore CA 94550 or placed in the offering plate during a worship service. Include the name of the person in whose memory the gift is given. Also include the name and address, if possible, of the family member who should be notified that a gift from the donor has been received.
