The Foundation of The Methodist Home of the South Georgia Conference, Inc. was established in 1999. The Foundation, while a separate entity from The Methodist Home, was created to benefit and carry out the purpose of The Methodist Home. We provide capital and operating support which enables The Methodist Home to serve Georgia’s neglected and abused children. The Foundation oversees and manages all of the long-term gifts made for the benefit of The Methodist Home including donations for the endowment, planned giving funds, and funds for The Joseph Company of 100.The generosity of our donors, who make gifts through cash, appreciated stock, beneficial interests in trusts, annuities, real property, or, upon death, through their estates, enables us to fulfill our mission. We are truly grateful for our donors because they make it possible for us to make a difference in children’s lives.
The Joseph Company of 100
The Joseph Company of 100 is a funding initiative that perpetuates the miracle of the Joseph story in Genesis by making preparations today for difficult times in the future. Members of The Joseph Company agree to make annual gifts of $1,200 for seven years. Through these gifts, The Foundation raises financial resources ahead of time for the children and families who will struggle with the famines of abuse, neglect and poverty in the future.
Legacy gifts are an important part of ensuring that the ministry of The Methodist Home will be able to continue well into the future. Legacy gifts may be made to The Foundation through estate gifts, beneficial interests in trusts, annuities, property gifts, and in other ways.
