LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Foundations of two Protestant denominations lately have received some hefty gifts.

The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) received a trust estimated at $8 million from the estate of Othel Fiers Brown of Charlotte, N.C. It believed to be the largest single bequest to a church body in the history of Protestantism.

The Presbyterian Church (USA) foundation received a gift of $2.9 million, described as the largest ever received by that denomination, from Irene Nunemaker of Topeka, Kan., an active member and philanthropist.
