United Methodist Church endowment funds are growing as more people recognize the benefits of permanently endowed funds. An endowment is a fund that is guarded and invested separately from other assets of the church so the principal of the fund stays intact. Endowments, by design, are expected to last forever.

On this page, you will find our current endowments. Endowment Giving is support beyond your tithe which enables Fountain City UMC’s commitment to grow deeper in our relationship with God by making disciples and changing lives for generations to come. Endowments are made possible by planned giving.
