BETHESDA COMMUNITY FOUNDATION

Every day, each one of us builds something. A family. A career. A reputation. A life. Built upon our hopes and dreams, reflecting our values and ideals, shaped by our words and deeds.
 
A hundred years from now, will the things that mattered to us still matter? Will the causes that stirred our hearts still incite passion? Will the purposes we lived for live on in others? When all is said and done, what do we leave behind?
 
Many of the blessings we enjoy today are the products of dedication on the part of those before us who were not content with the status quo. Instead, they were committed to leaving future generations a rich inheritance on which to build.
 
Through the Bethesda Community Foundation, you can make certain your gifts not only benefit others today, but countless generations in the future.
 
The Foundation can help you build a legacy of compassion, service, and devotion.
The Bethesda Community Foundation was established in 2017 to provide for the future of Christian ministry and community in West Parker County. The Foundation is has an ecumenical mission to support ministry for the entire community. Birthed from the faithful vision of individuals at Bethesda UMC, the Bethesda Community Foundation was established to support ministry and faith communities inside and outside of the established Bethesda UMC congregation.
