Legacy Giving

“No one but God alone knows how much I love and honor that church…I want to have some little part of the work of (Westminster) after I have gone.”

—Charles Thompson, Last Will & Testament, 1914

Many members and friends of Westminster Presbyterian Church make a lasting gift of gratitude through their estate. With the Legacy of Gratitude Program, we encourage members to respond to God’s grace with gratitude, help sustain the mission of Westminster, and create a legacy with a gift that reflects deeply held values. Westminster has a strong financial foundation thanks to generous members and prudent investing, and its endowment is the result of a tradition of careful stewardship of legacy gifts for over 100 years. The Legacy Program plays a key role in supporting the church’s mission and activities. Westminster members and friends who have made plans for a legacy gift become members of the Legacy Circle.

Stories from Our Donors:

Phil Asgian

When I started to filter what's important and where my assets go, no doubt Westminster is a part of that process

Elaine & Fred Dietrich

It's our turn. It’s important that we do our part as we think about the future of the church.

Betty Kinsey

I have left the church in my will. Westminster is my church family. You give so much back to the Lord’s work.

Jo Beld and Tim Delmont

We appreciate and support how Westminster does God’s good work in the world. We also wanted to model for our children the importance of including the wider community in our estate plan as a way of showing gratitude for God’s generosity.
