The United Pentecostal Church is blessed to have a person like Brother Drury directing our Stewardship Department. It was through him that we learned of the Donor Advised Fund in the Foundation. This is a fund whereby one can make a cash contribution of a desired amount. That contribution is placed in an investment fund directed by the Foundation. The donor has the privilege of directing proceeds, and even principal if desired, from those funds for support to any UPCI ministry they wish. Examples are: a Bible school of choice, Home Missions, Foreign Missions, Urshan Graduate School of Theology, or a church-sponsored ministry of choice.
My wife, Gayle, and I are very pleased to make a substantial contribution through the Foundation Donor Advised Fund program. The Donor Advised Fund also provides a federal tax contribution deduction, aiding in federal tax savings. It is a great joy to know you can give a great gift that keeps on giving per your personal direction.
I also wish to express my great appreciation for the vision of our Stewardship Department and United Pentecostal Foundation, under the direction of Brother Drury, with the oversight of Brother Haney and the General Board of the UPCI. I hope in a few short years our missionaries will be able to spend their total time on the field of their calling while churches, individual donors, and business and professional people provide the much-needed support to spread the whole gospel to the whole world.Albert & Gayle Skaggs Seymour, Indiana 08/07/2009
