Leave a Legacy at Free Will Baptist Press Through Planned Giving

     Making a planned gift is one way you can make a significant contribution to the Free Will Baptist Press and gain financial and tax benefits for you and your family. Planned gifts enable donors to make larger gifts than they could make from their income.  


     When it comes to making a planned gift, donors have many options. Our office is ready to help you and your estate planning advisors understand these options, which range from simple will bequests to more in-depth gifts, such as annuities or charitable trusts.


     Please contact Darren Davenport, Vice President, at 1-800-849-3927 to find out more about planned gifts and how you can leave a legacy at Free Will Baptist Press.




     A gift of cash is the easiest gift to make and provides the maximum deduction for donors. These gifts also deliver immediate benefits to The Press. Gifts can be made to the Free Will Baptist Press by sending a check or contributing online.

Stocks and Bonds

     Instead of cash, donors can use appreciated stocks, bonds, and/or mutual fund shares they have held “long term” (more than one year) to make their gift. They will be able to claim a federal income tax charitable deduction for the full, appreciated value of the securities (not the lesser amount they originally paid for them) and remove taxable assets from their estate. In addition, they will pay no capital gains tax on the transaction. This means the after-tax cost is less than a gift of cash.

Real Estate

     Make an extraordinary gift to transfer the burden and expense of managing your property and remove a large asset from your taxable estate at the same time by gifting real estate to the Free Will Baptist Press. A real estate gift can be made outright or can fund a life income arrangement. Donors can receive immediate tax deductions while eliminating capital gains taxes. If you are interested in gifting real estate to The Press, please let us know.
