What is a Legacy Gift and How Will the Church Use It?
A legacy gift is something you include in your estate plan. You can name the church as a recipient in your will, as a life insurance beneficiary, or in the disbursal of an IRA fund. Gifting property, stocks or bonds may also be a means of giving.
Legacy gifts become part of PHPC’s Endowment Fund. Your gift will support ministries within the church, mission services beyond our congregation, and preserve and maintain the facilities of the church. You may choose to designate your gift to any of the above areas of broad scope and objective.

For the Donor:
You create an expression of your deepest convictions.
You know you are contributing to ministries for generations to come.
You remain secure with your current income or current assets.
You provide potential tax benefits for you and your heirs.
For the Church:
Perpetual support is received for the growth and viability of ministries at PHPC.
Financial stability is ensured for the future of PHPC.
Getting Started on Your Legacy Gift
Our pastors would be pleased to meet with you to talk more about a legacy gift. Contact them at the church office. You may also consult with Robert Hay Jr., the local representative of the Presbyterian Foundation, an organization that specializes in planned giving. Also, consult with your legal/financial adviser as you begin to make giving plans.
