Planned Giving Program

On Sunday, January 20, your Endowment Committee is kicking off the Bay Shore Planned Giving program at 11:00 in Gabrielson Chapel. Howard Hawkins, Director of Business Development for United Church Funds and Don Hill, former Director of Planned Giving for the UCC will be traveling form New York to Long Beach to help with our kickoff and to lead the presentation. This meeting will introduce the newly developed Bay Shore Church Planned Giving website which will provide all the information needed to start your legacy donation to Bay Shore.

The Bay Shore Endowment Fund was founded in 1986 and has a current value of $869,947. The fund has grown substantially over the years through twenty-three gifts and bequests and has provided funding for many good works at Bay Shore. It is important that we continue to grow the fund principle, so we can continue to provide much-needed funding for our Church.

It is very important that we have a strong show of support for this new program. Please plan on attending.

Sandwiches, drinks and cookies will be provided.
