Legacy Partners

Living Legacy Partners were established in 2012 and provides an opportunity to give more permanent gifts to Northwest which are separate from the day to day funding of church expenses. With the exception of the Real Estate fund, our funds are endowment funds and as such only 4-5% of the fund balance can be disbursed each year. Through additional gifts along with investment returns, we hope to continually expand outreach and programs at Northwest. Find more information about some of our current funds below.

Living Legacy Funds

Music, Drama, and Performance

This is a new fund initiated in June 2023 with founding gifts received through February 2024. The purpose of the fund is to enhance and expand the Music, Drama and Performance Ministry of Northwest United Methodist Church. Projects which expand individual participation – especially involving youth and young adults – are prioritized. The use of funds may include purchasing music or scripts; paying artists, composers, choreographers or production costs; maintenance and purchase of instruments or sound and visual technology. Other uses of the fund which support the Music, Drama and Performance ministry are expected and will also be considered.

Leadership Development

The purpose of this fund is to assist in paying the costs of interested parishioners (not including current Northwest paid ordained pastors) for participating in events and activities which enhance Christian leadership, understanding of the church organization, and achieve spiritual growth. Priority for the funding of costs of participants shall be given to youth and young adult leaders. One example of a usage of this fund is for youth who attend summer mission trip.

Children and Youth Programs

The purpose of this fund is to support Children’s and Youth Programs at Northwest. This fund was established by Edith A. Hajek and Brian Hajek in 2013 as a memorial to their son, David Andrew Hajek. Additional contributions to this fund are welcome. Money from this fund has been used to support the Northwest Children’s Garden.

Chapel in the Woods and Memorial Garden

The purpose of this fund is to provide for the upkeep, improvement, and sponsorship of events within the Chapel in the Woods, the Memorial Garden, and the surrounding wooded area to the property lines east, west, and north of the Chapel in the Woods and Memorial Garden. Some funds from this were used in the addition of a labyrinth to the property and in expanding and updating the Memorial Garden.


The purpose of this fund is to support church needs over and above the annual budget. Distribution of this fund is determined after the Capital Management Committee receives a written request or a request from church leadership. As an endowment fund, 4-5% of this fund can be expended each year.
