An Approach to Giving
As members of Bunker Hill United Methodist Church, many of the blessings we enjoy today are the products of dedication on the part of those before us who were not content with the status quo. Instead, they were committed to leaving future generations a rich inheritance on which to build.

There are several legacy giving arrangements that will help you maximize your personal benefits and accomplish your charitable giving goals. Each legacy giving arrangement can be structured to suit your individual situation.
Will – a gift to Bunker Hill UMC may be made in your will.
Lifetime Gift – a gift where the donor receives a lifetime benefit, such as a charitable gift annuity.
Outright Gift – a gift which benefits the donor with income tax savings for the current year, such as cash, real estate, stock or life insurance.
