The Wesley Foundation at Florida State University and Tallahassee Community College has been blessed with a rich history of ministry since 1926. Throughout the 90+ years of ministry, thousands of young adult’s lives have been impacted and transformed – through their call to ministry, meeting and falling in love with their spouse, serving others in ministry and mission, learning to live out their faith outside of the church walls, and so much more.
With their eyes set on providing a legacy for Wesley’s future, our Board of Directors established a Permanent Endowment Fund in 2012. Through this endowment, the Wesley Foundation is able to support the ministry for generations to come through the residual income from the endowment.
Most often when we think of making gifts, we naturally think of giving from our “regular” income. However, as we prayerfully consider sacrificial and long term giving, we have an opportunity to reflect on other sources of giving as well.
You might be wondering, what is an endowment? An endowment is a fund that can be invested to establish a permanent source of income to support our programs and ministries. Wesley’s vision of “The love of Jesus compels us to be a distinctively Christian community, committed to the spiritual maturity of students, and to positively impact the FSU & TCC campuses and beyond.” will be further advanced by our endowment.
Why give to an endowment?
Gifts that are given to an endowment will establish a long term source of income and financial security to support Wesley’s vision and mission for campus ministry. This income is separate from the annual operating budget because the assets are invested for eternity. We believe in the future of young adults, campus ministry, and The United Methodist Church, and we want to plan well for it. Click here for ways to give to give to the endowment.
Benefits of Legacy Giving
These generous gifts of any size will continue to give beyond one’s lifetime, and will continue to impact future Christian leaders within and outside of the church. Planned giving supports stewardship as a lifetime practice. The Wesley Foundation at FSU & TCC’s Permanent Endowment Fund is securely housed at the Florida United Methodist Foundation. All endowment gifts will be used within the guidelines of The United Methodist Church and the Book of Discipline.
