The First United Methodist Church of Hickory permanent endowment fund was established to enable First UMC, Hickory to grow in mission and ministry, so that future generations may know the full love of Christ.

With a variety of giving options, we invite members to invest in the church’s long-range vision, and friends and family may give as a lasting way to honor a loved one.  The donor creates a legacy for the future and provides a permanent resource for the church’s witness for Christ.

If you wish to make a gift to the Permanent Endowment Fund, click Endowment Fund and enter the required information. From the Fund drop down menu, choose “Permanent Endowment”. You do not have to be a member to make a contribution.

What is an Endowment Fund?

An endowment fund is the accumulation of gifts and bequests made to an institution.  The principal amount (the corpus) is invested while the investment income is available for use in support of the church.
