Planned Giving

Ways to Give

Planned Giving provides donors with an opportunity to support ministry and leave a legacy. American Baptist Foundation (ABF) accepts gifting of cash, appreciated securities, or other assets, allowing supports to receive generous tax and/or financial benefits, including income.

There are a variety of other giving options, such as gifts of real estate, life insurance, and other property. ABF will work with you and your advisors to establish a gift plan that works best for you! Giving to our cause can be done either directly or through a gift model that can provide tax benefits and even income. Below are the common types of gifts that ABF manages.

  • Charitable Trusts
