  • Why Use Barnabas Foundation?

    Many people who have given to Christian organizations throughout their lifetimes want to make sure that part of their Estate will continue to support these Christian causes upon their death. They choose to make a charitable gift at that time, rather than allowing their charitable giving to end.

    People often ask, "How much should I give?" or "What do other people do?" This decision is obviously very personal. It depends on your goals and what you want to communicate to your family and your community. What do you want your legacy to be?

    We help Christians accomplish their Estate Planning goals.

    We consider income needs and requirements in each plan. Attorneys who are knowledgeable about charitable giving benefits, as well as Estate Plans, come alongside you during the process.

    We assure complete confidentiality in the planning process.

    People feel safe and secure in providing us with information needed to develop their Estate Plan because the planning is objective and independent, and all information is kept strictly confidential. We never disclose financial details or family situations to any organization.

    We do not sell or recommend any particular financial or investment products.

    Barnabas Foundation does not receive any fees or payments from individuals or companies who offer financial or investment products. We neither refer individuals nor recommend specific companies that offer investment products.

    Our planning services are provided at no charge or obligation. 

    We provide our services at no charge and without obligation, thanks to the annual contributions made by the Foundation's nearly 200 Christian member organizations. We never ask for any gifts.

    Since 1976, Barnabas Foundation has been advancing God’s Kingdom by providing Christian Estate Planning and Charitable Giving Services. We help caring Christians strengthen support for the charities important to them.

  • Working With Us

    There are certain times and events in your life when planning for future charitable donations not only creates a great benefit for your favorite charities, but also provides a positive, current tax benefit for you. Significant events may include selling a business or farm, or developing a plan for retirement income. These occasions are excellent opportunities to consider a "Planned Gift."

    We would be happy to sit down with you to plan your giving options and help you choose the ones that work best for you.

    We are committed to the biblical principles of Christian stewardship. When we discuss the use of God's resources, we recognize that God owns it all. We each have a responsibility to act as God's stewards in managing His gifts to us.

    Along with individual Estate Planning services, Barnabas Foundation assists Christians and charitable ministries in managing their gifts, which provides convenience to you and expertise to our nearly 200 member organizations.
