  • 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.

  • Year-End Timetable

    With the rush of the Christmas holidays comes the rush to get charitable giving completed before year-end.  At such times it is important to remember the date on which the IRS considers the contribution deductible. The contribution date will determine the tax year in which you are allowed the deduction. Thus, you may want to keep in mind the following gift timing rules.
