Hope for Tomorrow

Make a lasting impact. Leave a legacy filled with hope. Feed kids for years to come.

FMSC Hope for Tomorrow donors are a select group of FMSC supporters who make a choice to feed children through their legacy giving. By making FMSC a beneficiary of your will, estate plan or life insurance policy, you can provide long-lasting Hope for Tomorrow.

Whether you would like to put your donation to work now via a stock gift or IRA distribution or decide to provide nourishing meals for children after your lifetime, there are many gift arrangements for you to consider. 

Your will governs much of your estate. In addition, a beneficiary designation form will govern how your retirement plan and life insurance policies will be distributed. These are all important decisions to make NOW so that you can save the lives of hungry children LATER.

A heart for kids’ futures

Leaving a legacy

Tim and Judy, Hope for Tomorrow donors, felt compelled to share their abundance with those who experience deep poverty and cannot feed their kids. They love volunteering at FMSC, so they decided to invest deeper and include FMSC in their estate planning, to make sure that kids around the world are fed and have the opportunity to know the love of Jesus.
