Make a Planned Gift

Turn to the Foundation to secure your charitable legacy and make ministry dreams come true.

Your favorite ministry has a dream that’s bigger than its resources. Its leaders are praying for resources needed to start new initiatives and expand current offerings to more fully live into its mission.

What if you could be the answer to their prayers?

Join the faithful individuals who turn to the Foundation to make ministry dreams a reality, and take the first step in making a planned gift.

A planned gift brings together your dream, assets, and goals.

We will carefully help you craft a one-of-a-kind gift to your church and other ministries by starting with three simple questions.

First, “What is your dream for your favorite ministry?” Are you passionate about missions, scholarships, children, or music? Do you want to replace your current giving on an ongoing basis beyond your own lifetime? Start with the dream.

Second, “What do you have?” We typically turn to our assets as the source of a planned gift. You may have more to your name than first thought; anyone can make a planned gift.

Finally, “What are your goals?” Are you trying to reduce your tax liability? Secure a lifetime income? Preserve something for an heir? There’s a planned giving option that takes those goals into consideration.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does planned giving include more than estate gifts?

A planned gift is any gift that requires intention above our “regular” giving.

Many planned gifts can be made immediately. Others can provide a lifetime income for you and a loved one, and still others can preserve something for an heir.
