Catalina United Methodist Church is a historic church in Tucson whose ministries have impacted many lives. Over the years, out of gratitude for what the church has done in their lives and the lives of their families, many individuals and families have wanted a way to remember and contribute to the church’s ministry in addition to their  regular yearly pledges. The Catalina United Methodist foundation provides a process to manage and facilitate this through planned donations and advanced estate planning.
