This time of year, we hear many affirmations of joy in familiar Christmas hymns, seasonal décor, and greetings from friends and loved ones. For myself and the First Methodist Church Foundation’s Board of Directors, we’re feeling joyful about the opportunity to serve the church!
During this season of thanksgiving and gratitude, we celebrate the enduring legacy of Helen W. Watt, a longtime member of First United Methodist Church of Fort Worth. Mrs. Watt, who died in 1997, solicited many of the original gifts that formed the First Methodist Church of Fort Worth Foundation.
The Foundation has been blessed yet again this year! Every year, we are privileged to be able to give a distribution gift to the Church; this year is no exception.
Another year and another tax deadline has come and gone. Springtime is often the time of year for cleaning and putting a good foot forward for a prosperous year to come.
November and December are typically charitable, generous, and thankful months where communities and families come together to reflect on their good fortunes and blessings.
It is no secret to Texans that gas and oil royalties are highly coveted assets. So how did the Foundation come across the ownership interest of 742 wells in 43 different counties spread across four states in the South?
