How to Give

Giving through the Foundation can be done either directly or through many different planned giving vehicles. Explore our legacy giving options below.

Bequests and Beneficiary Designations

An excellent way to support your ministry of choice is to make a bequest in your will or living trust. You might also choose to give to ministry by designating the Foundation as the beneficiary of a retirement, investment, or bank account.

Donor-Advised Funds

Are you looking for a way to benefit ministry both now and in the future? With a Donor-Advised Fund (DAF), you can make gifts to ministry during your lifetime and, when you pass away, your children can carry on your legacy of giving.


An endowment provides ongoing funding for the ministry of your choice by distributing funds from your gift to that ministry each year, in perpetuity. You can endow any ministry or ministry project.

Charitable Gift Annuities

With a Charitable Gift Annuity (CGA), a one-time gift to the Foundation will result in secure, guaranteed income for the rest of your life, based off a percentage of the gift. When you go to heaven, your CGA will result in a significant gift to ministry.

Charitable Remainder Trusts

You transfer cash or appreciated assets to the Foundation to fund a Charitable Remainder Trust. We provide you with income for life or a term of years and then transfer the remainder to the church or ministry you designate.

Charitable Lead Trusts

You fund a trust through the Foundation that makes gifts to your local church or another ministry for a number of years. After a period of time, your family receives the remainder with significant tax savings.
