Making a Bequest

If you are considering including St. Paul’s in your will, you may wish to visit with Executive Director, Jerry Oakland, to discuss options. Together you may develop a “Gift Agreement” with specific information about the desired designation of your gift – details that do not need to be included in your will.

If you have already made a provision for St. Paul’s in your estate plans, it would help us use your gift according to your wishes if you would complete and return this form to us.

The tax ID number for the Foundation is 75-3093308
The official legal bequest language for St. Paul's is:

"I [name], of [city, state, ZIP], give, devise and bequeath to St. Paul’s United Methodist Church of Cedar Rapids Foundation [written amount or percentage of the estate or description of property] for its unrestricted use and purpose.”

If you prefer to remain anonymous, your gift will be kept completely confidential. However, please realize that recognition of your gift can encourage others to do the same. Whatever the case, we will honor your wishes. If you would like to discuss specifically how your gift will be used, contact Rev. Jerry Oakland, Executive Director, at 319-200-1066 or
