The work of Metropolitan Memorial is supported not only through the generosity of its current members, but through the tremendous gifts of generations past. There are a number of ways to contribute to the long range health of the Metropolitan community and the ministries in which we engage:
The Metropolitan Foundation is the recipient of generations of giving in our church. Gifts to the Foundation are invested in socially responsible ways, and the proceeds support the work of the church in an ongoing way. The Foundation is able to accept gifts of appreciated stocks and other financial investment vehicles, and would be delighted to explore a variety of planned giving opportunities that make use of tax incentives to enable larger giving.
The Reredos Society is a wonderful group of Metropolitan supporters who have chosen to remember Metropolitan in their wills. Named after the beautiful needle-pointed piece of art behind the church altar (a project in which many, many Metropolitan members contributed), the Reredos Society celebrates the rich history of our church and ensures its work into the future.
For more information on planned giving opportunities at Metropolitan, please contact the Executive Director of Operations.
