We encourage giving as an act of worship.


II Corinthians 9:7 “Let each one do just as he has purposed in his heart: not grudgingly or under compulsion; for God loves a cheerful giver.”

The Virginia Beach United Methodist Church Foundation was established as a Charitable Trust Fund in 1994. Gifts received by the Foundation are received in perpetuity. The purpose is to encourage, acknowledge, administer, and invest endowment gifts to the Foundation. The Foundation Board is a good steward of donations as it furthers the ministries of the church. Gifts have a lasting impact and benefit the church in many ways. Those gifts will provide additional support for the church’s ministries, beyond budgetary needs, such as:

  • Scholarships
  • Missions
  • Facilities
  • Seminars
  • Special Events
  • Music
  • Youth Programs
  • Senior Programs
  • Other Approved Ministry Opportunities

Giving is an act of faith. There are many ways for you to make a gift that continues to give. As tax laws change, new ideas continue to be developed. Suggestions many include:

  • Cash contributions
  • Bequest in your will (Include VBUMC Foundation as a residual beneficiary to your will)
  • Real Estate Gifts (Donate real estate such as land, houses, or buildings)
  • Stocks, Bonds, or other Securities
  • Life Insurance (You may name the Foundation as a whole beneficiary or partial of a policy without probate or other administrative delay.)

For information, please contact the church office. Pastors or members of the Foundation Committee are available to discuss the opportunities to contribute.

We genuinely thank you for your contributions to our mission of spreading God's Glory.
