United Methodist Women - Western North Carolina ConferenceTurning faith, hope and love into action on behalf of women, children and youth around the world
Celebrating 150 Years (1869-2019)Webster defines legacy as “something handed down to another.” What a wonderful thing to do. While it is not something that we think or talk about all the time, it is an issue that should be given some thought. What will you leave behind? The question is not whether you will leave a legacy but what that legacy will be. Usually when people pass away there is a huge focus on the things they owned.... who gets this trinket or who gets that knick-knack. The idea of handing down values or ideas or mission is a totally new way to look at it. I would like to inject a connection with giving, mission, and United Methodist Women. If we love this organization like we so eloquently display, let’s preserve it for years to come. There is magic in the connection. We are bridging generations of United Methodist Women. The Legacy Fund is a forward thinking permanent endowment with income dedicated to strengthening our organization. It does not have to be complicated. The Legacy Fund is a way to celebrate, honor, memorialize, educate, challenge, invest, secure and so much more!
