Planned Giving

Scripture teaches that God is the owner of all things and we are to be stewards (managers) of all He has entrusted to our care, which includes our estate. Therefore, how we view our estate should be through the lens of Christian stewardship. It further leads us to discover ways to take care of both family and faith. Many discover they have the ability to make a planned gift otherwise thought impossible.

 
The Baptist Foundation of Alabama is ready to assist you with your
Christian Estate Plan. We all have the ability to impact the world for Christ.

Bequests

Bequests

Joe and Anna have been faithful supporters of our organization. They believe it is important to support and encourage our mission.

Joe: Several years ago, Anna and I decided to become part of the organization's mission. We believe that they are truly helping others. We think that it is important to partner with them to make a difference. For that reason, Anna and I have made gifts over the years to help others.

Anna: We wanted to do more than to just make gifts. Joe and I have been careful over the years and have accumulated some resources. We plan to be generous with family, but we also have the ability to be generous with charity.

After talking it over, we decided to leave a bequest in our will. Our attorney took the simple language available from the organization and included a nice bequest. We are delighted that we will be helping others through them.
