Researchers say that 60-65% of people across the country and in our churches don't have an estate plan. Of the 35% or so who do, only 9% leave charitable gifts. Of that, only 4% are to faith based organizations.
FPM not only provides a way for your members to set up an estate plan without any out-of-pocket cost, we promote stewardship as well. 96% of our members include their church and other charities they support in their estate plan.
For every $1 a Ministry Partner invests in FPM, a future gift of approximately $50 is developed. What kind of return are you getting from your current planned giving program?
