LEGACY AND  MEMORIAL  MINISTRY 

What will be my legacy?

The Palm West Community Church (PWCC) Legacy and Memorial Ministry (LMM) was created to maintain Palm West Community Church’s Core Purpose and Vision in furthering the eternal ministry of Jesus Christ!

Palm West Community Church’s
Core Purpose 

The purpose of this Church shall be the advancement of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ. It shall seek to attain this end through public worship of God, inviting persons to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, evangelistic outreach and missionary endeavor.

Palm West Community Church’s
Vision

Our Vision is to unify together, edify one another and glorify God by reaching people with the Gospel, sharing the plan of salvation, leading them to Christ and discipling them in the Christian faith.

We aspire to be known as the “People Who Care Church” and “A Spiritual Oasis in the Desert”.

We seek to be the “people of God, doing the work of God, through the power of God”.

Establishing My Legacy...

What Is Legacy and Memorial Ministry? 

These are “funds or property donated to an institution, individual or group to produce income”. (i.e. PWCC)

Our Fund’s Purpose and Vision

The purpose and vision of the LMM is to strengthen the ongoing witness and mission of Jesus Christ in our Church. It will provide a legacy that will continue far beyond our lifetimes.

Managing My Legacy...

How does it work? 

Your donations to our LMM take a completely different path than the regular tithes & offerings to our Church and its Ministries.

Our tithes and offerings support PWCC’s current needs. The LMM is intended to be perpetual; therefore, if requested, only accumulated growth and earnings are intended to be disbursed from the Fund, although principal disbursements are allowed.

Spending Policy

The LMM Fund was created to be originated and expanded by donations and to last in perpetuity. The Committee will prudently spend funds in accordance with the adopted Endowment Policy of PWCC, and intends to safeguard them through wise and stable investments.

Investment Policy

The Fund has a long-term investment horizon. A conservative investment profile will be maintained to preserve  the assets of the Fund while also seeking a return.

Two Legacy Opportunities...

Non – Designated Fund

This Fund provides for the Church’s charitable and tax exempt purposes, including operating expenses, at the discretion of the LMM.

Donor – Memorials & Designated Fund

This Fund is an opportunity for a Donor to designate one or more of our Church's Ministries as the beneficiary or beneficiaries of their donation. A $10,000 initial donation is required to begin a specific Donor — Designated Memorial Ministry Fund.

The Next Step...

You play an important role in sustaining PWCC’s legacy for generations to come. No donation is too small; one hundred donations of $100 go as far as one $10,000 donation.
