Restricted Endowment Funds represent funds gifted to the Foundation to benefit one or more designated United Methodist institutions, agencies, local churches or other charitable purposes. The President of the Foundation is available to work with interested persons in creating restricted endowment funds which serve their charitable interests. Fund agreements are crafted by the Foundation to represent donor wishes. 

This program allows church-related organizations which qualify for Agency Membership with the Foundation to place their endowment funds in the Foundation's common investment pool and receive periodic income disbursements. Income may also be reinvested.

The Foundation can provide information and assistance to local churches seeking to establish, manage, and market local church endowment funds. Several resource manuals are available from the Foundation to assist local churches in the process of creating and marketing local church endowment funds.

This program allows a donor to make a gift and retain the right to an income from the gift for the remainder of his or her lifetime.  Joint and two-life survivor Gift Annuities are also available. The Foundation began its Gift Annuity Program in 1981. Since then over fifty gift annuities have been written by the Foundation.
