Planned/Deferred Gifts     

     Making a planned gift is one way you can make a significant contribution to 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 ext. 224 to find out more about planned gifts and how you can leave a legacy at Free Will Baptist Press.


     An endowment is a gift that is held in perpetuity and invested. The return on the investment provides a constant source of income for the activities designated by the donor. Endowment funds at the Free Will Baptist Press help maintain the ministry's financial strength.


     Endowments can be established through current gifts of cash, stock, or real estate, or planned gifts such as charitable trusts, charitable gift annuities, life insurance, or bequests.


     Endowments are invested in the market with 4% of the earnings interest distributed or reinvested. Endowment Funds are the exclusive responsibility of the Board of Directors. The investment responsibility rests with the Board of Directors Business Affairs Committee.


     An Endowed Fund Agreement (EFA) must be signed prior to the establishment of an endowed fund. Any gift for a restricted endowment must be reviewed and approved prior to its execution. Endowments must reach a minimum of $10,000 within 5 years of its inception before any income from that fund can be distributed.


     If you would like to contribute to Free Will Baptist Press or are interested in starting one of your own, contact Darren Davenport, Vice President, for more information at 1-800-849-3927.
