Bishops’ Club members make gifts to the Foundation in honor of the bishops and their families who have served our state since 1836. These gifts encourage other donations, expand United Methodist ministries and allow the Foundation to provide free services to individuals and local churches.
There are two levels of membership:
- Life Members are donors who contribute a one-time gift of $15,000 to the Cornerstone Fund, an endowment to support the ministry of the Foundation. Individuals with life income gifts to the Foundation with a remainder interest of $15,000 or more are also eligible.
- Annual Members donate $1,000 each year to the Foundation.
Each year, the Foundation hosts an appreciation luncheon to thank the Bishops' Club members for their critical support. The members enjoy a special lunch, receive inspiration from a well-known keynote speaker, and thoroughly enjoy the chance visit with Methodist friends and make new ones.
