Hilltop Endowment Fund
"Creating a Living Legacy in Christian Giving"

    After providing for the financial security of your family and loved ones, the Hilltop Church Endowment Fund offers a unique opportunity to support the Church's mission as a living legacy of charitable giving.
    The Endowment Fund is different from the church's annual giving requests.  It was established to:

  • Preserve and maintain the church's facilities and grounds.

  • Support and nourish specific ministries of the church.

    Endowment funds are used for needs outside the annual budget.

Types of Gifts

  • An outright gift in a lump sum amount given at any time.

  • A bequest of a specific amount, a percentage, or residual of an estate (after other bequests and expenses are deducted).

  • A contribution to establish a permanent fund to generate income for years to come.


  • Cash or securities.

  • Retirement assets such as IRA, 401K, tax sheltered annuity, or profit sharing plan.

  • Life insurance policies.

  • Real estate.

  • Tangible personal property such as works of art or antiques.


    A gift to the Endowment Fund is deductible for federal estate tax purposes.  These gifts are also generally not subject to state inheritance of estate taxes.
