Giving willingly, generously, and cheerfully requires dedication, forethought, and sacrifice. Through regular, planned giving of tithes and offerings, we show ourselves to be faithful in the stewardship of all that God has provided for us.
Our online contribution system makes giving donations, tithes, and gifts safe and easy! Contribute to the Oak Hill UMC General Fund, Endowment Fund, Communion Rail, Dedicated Fund, and/or the Building/Debt Reduction Fund.
Donations are a special way to celebrate a life, birthday, anniversary, special occasion, or to just say thanks, and they serve as genuine testimonies to others! A note will be sent to the person you have honored or to the family of the deceased notifying them of the gift. This note will not list amounts of gifts, but will let them know a gift has been made in their honor or memory.
NOTE: If you already have an online giving account, you will need to create a new account. See the instructions below. Questions? Contact Angie Bragg at 512-785-6205 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

OAK HILL UMC PERMANENT ENDOWMENT FUND
The Permanent Endowment Fund was established to create and maintain an enduring source of financial support for the Church and its programs. When you leave something to the Endowment Fund in your trust or will, your gift will never be depleted, but will provide money to fund innovative missions or just take care of the church through coming generations. Your gift will then live on beyond you, and you will be remembered by all who benefit from your gift.
The interest from the principal will be used for special mission projects/ministries locally and beyond the local church, and unusual expenses related to the maintenance, repair, alteration and replacement of the real and personal church property.
Funds are invested with the Texas Methodist Foundation. As of 5/27/20, the balance was $166,532.11. Your gifts remain in the principal. The earnings from your gifts to the Fund will support special mission projects and major expenses for church maintenance and improvement of property owned by the church.
Our hope is that those of you who love this church and are committed to seeing it thrive in the future will consider ways that can extend your giving “as long as you ever can” through a bequest, annuity or planned gift for the Endowment Fund.
For what has been, we give thanks. For what shall be, we give praise. For more information about the Endowment Fund, please watch the YouTube videos below and contact Angie Bragg at email@example.com.
