The Miami Valley Women’s Center Legacy for Life Endowment Fund is a fund established to be used sovereignly by God to generate a permanent income source that will – over the long term – directly benefit and maintain the MVWC ministry. Your gift assures continued growth of God’s ministry and is a gift to future generations.

Who should give to it?

  • Those who care about protecting from abortion the unborn children made in God’s image.
  • Those who care about God working in the lives of the mothers and fathers of these unborn children and bringing these parents to true salvation in Christ.
  • Those who care about perpetuating the ministry for years to come even if abortion were to become illegal.

Ways to give?

Types of Funds to choose from which are administered by the Dayton Foundation:

  • Pure Fund – Because this Fund was established to generate income from investments of the Fund’s principle, only dividends and interest will be used for the ministry.
  • Term Fund – Because this Fund was established for flexibility and for short and long term stability, there are no limitations on the use of the funds except what is deemed prudent by the MVWC Governing Board.

When and how to give?

  • Whenever God prompts you, don’t hesitate.
  • God loves a cheerful giver: “So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.” – II Cor 9:7
  • Be sure to consult with your legal and tax advisers for your planning.
  • Giving for specific purposes? While any gift is appreciated, gifts that you wish to designate for specific projects should be given to the general account and not to the Endowment Fund.

For specific information and details, contact the Miami Valley Women’s Center Executive Director at 937-298-9998. The Dayton Foundation will administer the funds and any transfers of gifts.

Gifts to the Endowment Fund qualify as a charitable donation. Several kinds of gifts allow you to continue to use the donated property or receive income during your life or still receive income during your life and still receive a tax donation. A savings in inheritance and estate taxes may also be possible.
