The Anchor Legacy Society includes those who have remembered Christ Church in their wills or have made provision for the church through other planned gifts.

If you are updating your estate planning documents, including a will or trust, and are interested in giving to Christ Church to support God’s work in Exeter and the wider church and community, I invite you to reach out for more information.

For an easier way to give to Christ Church through your estate, consider giving through any life insurance policies, retirement accounts (401k, IRA, 403B), or other annuities, which generally requires a simple change to a beneficiary designation form.

The Endowment Fund welcomes gifts for any occasion; it is not exclusively for bequests. Gifts in memory of a family member or friend are very appropriate; likewise, gifts in honor or in celebration of a person or event are equally desired. There is any number of occasions when a gift can be made, (birthdays, baptisms, graduations, anniversaries, good fortune, and others) recognizing the moment and helping to grow the Fund.
