Other Charitable Gifts

Cash gifts are one of the most popular ways of helping children in our care. Cash can be given easily and a receipt verifying your gift will be issued for tax purposes. We need people willing to give annual gifts and/or monthly gifts to provide for the on-going needs of our children.

Gifts of Appreciable Assets

Gifts of stock, bonds, real estate and other appreciated assets are regularly accepted and used by the ministries of MBCH.

 

In-Kind Gifts

The MBCH Foundation accepts gifts of clothing, school supplies, personal hygiene supplies and other items used directly in our ministries. Our Campus Needs page provides a list of items specifically needed this month. We can also recieve items such as used automobiles and convert them to a usuable asset or cash.

 

Gift of Life Insurance

The gift of life insurance policy is a very afforable and popular method of giving.

 

Memorials and/or Tribute Gifts

This is an excellent way of helping children in need while paying tribute to someone special. Memorial and Tribute gifts are recognized monthly in The Messenger - the newsletter of Missouri Baptist Children's Home.

 

Bequests by Will or Trust

A testamentary gift can be made by including Missouri Baptist Children's Home in a will or a revocable living trust. The bequest can be in the form of a specific dollar amount or a percent of the estat. MBCH Foundation staff is available to help you with the establishment of your estate placns. Go to the Planned Giving page for more details on this type of gift.

 

Life Income Arrangements

The charitablre remainder unitrust is anarrangement by which you permanently transfer property to a charitable trust. The trust then pays an income for the life of one or tow beneficiaries (or for a term of years), after which the remainder of the trust assets (or income) goes to the charity of your choice. A gift annuity can similarly provide a life income while providing significant tax savings. This is an excellent way of helping children in need while paying tribute to someone special. Memorial and Tribute gifts are recognized quarterly in The Messenger - the newsletter of Missouri Baptist Children's Home.
