Charitable Gift Annuity
Madelyn DeGroot’s testimony illustrates the power of leaving a legacy and the benefit of a charitable gift annuity. “People just do not realize the benefits of a charitable gift annuity!” was Madelyn De Groot’s comment. “They just do not know.” For Madelyn, a gift annuity was a great way to give. She received an immediate tax deduction while getting increased income for life, with the remainder going to her favorite Christian causes. Barnabas Foundation is a good option for gift annuities because she was able to support several different Christian organizations with a single gift annuity.

Peter de Graaf’s testimony illustrates the power of leaving a legacy and how estate planning can help support your favorite ministries. Peter’s story highlights important lessons for everyone who wants to honor God with the time and money He has entrusted to them. First, don’t wait to plan; second, gift planning is wise stewardship; and finally, if we live and give with eternity in mind, it doesn’t matter whether God gives us 10 years or 100 years on earth; we all have the opportunity to leave a legacy that brings glory to God and eternal joy.

Do you have kids or grandkids that like to keep secrets? A secret, the dictionary reports, is something hidden from view.

Although motivations of the heart are not always visible, Jesus takes notice and ultimately commends them. Here are 5 “secrets” of good and faithful servants that we trust will be an encouragement to you as you grow in your walk with the Lord.
Most people immediately think of money when they hear the word “stewardship.” But stewardship is so much bigger than finances. It’s really a heart issue – a longing to offer everything we are and have to Him. Consider these truths from the Word of God as you prayerfully ask the Lord to make your heart more in tune with His.
