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.

Peace of Mind Gift Annuity

Peace of Mind Gift Annuity

Many years ago, Clara bought a home. Since she was very pleased with the home, she decided to buy stock in the company that built it. Over the years, the stock has increased in value many times.

Clara: I have enjoyed my home and I thought if I like my home, other people would like theirs. Because I was a happy homeowner, I purchased shares of stock in this homebuilder. It was a good investment.

While the stock has gone up in value several times, I am now tired of guessing the market. In the last few years, the stock has gone up and down in value. I think it would be much better to have a good fixed return and not worry about the stock markets.

Clara called her favorite charity and discovered that she could receive a return of almost 6.4%, based upon her age. This fixed payment was in addition to a large income tax deduction. Clara decided to transfer $10,000 of appreciated stock to our organization.

Clara: I am delighted with my gift annuity. I receive 6.4% and saved over $1,500 in income taxes. This plan has been great. Best of all, I no longer have to watch the markets go up and down. I now have peace of mind.
