Establish Your Legacy

One aspect of life that is inevitable is change. As life changes, it is important to plan ahead by distributing your estates and other assets. One’s estate is a sacred trust. It has accumulated over the years through work, prudent management and God’s providence. When you give to the LOPC Foundation, you show your love for God, and help preserve LOPC’s Mission and Vision for future generations. Through the grace of God, we have been blessed with many past and present LOPC members with a philanthropic spirit to go above and beyond when giving.

The LOPC Foundation was formed to help people create more value from their assets and to thoughtfully consider and plan the distribution of family assets remaining when life is complete. The Foundation can be used by estates both large and small to further God’s work through LOPC and its outreach to those in need. Individuals can benefit from the knowledge that gifts made to the Foundation will continue to work year after year.  Consider becoming a Friend of the LOPC Foundation.
