Like a “charitable giving account,” you can give to a single fund and then request grants be made to one or multiple ministries that are close to your heart.

Benefits of Using the Stewards Fund

  • Timing. Receive an immediate tax deduction at the time you make a gift into the Stewards Fund. Then, at a time that works best for you, advise Barnabas Foundation how you wish your gifts to be distributed.

  • Flexibility. Grants can be requested at any time of the day using our convenient online e-grant system. You may choose to give in one-time or recurring increments, and you may choose to designate your gift to meet specific organizational needs.

  • Simplicity. Simplify your giving and record-keeping by making all gifts of cash, stocks or appreciated assets into a single account.

  • Privacy. You can choose to make any or all grants anonymously.

  • Expertise. Benefit from the knowledge and expertise of Barnabas Foundation staff who will manage and liquidate your non-cash asset gifts for the benefit of charitable causes.

  • Cost-effective. Many families choose to use their Stewards Fund account as a cost-effective alternative to establishing a private foundation.
