A planned gift is one that most often is made from one’s accumulated assets, such as stocks, real estate or personal property, or life insurance. But you don’t have to be old to consider a planned gift. The most common planned gift, for example, is made through one’s will, commonly called a bequest. Everyone, regardless of age, needs to have a last will and testament. Other types of planned gifts produce income for life, either for the donor or for others.

The American Baptist Foundation works with individuals seeking to make a difference, in the future of ministries like ours. The donor decides the ultimate beneficiary of any type of planned gift.
