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.
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 receive items such as used automobiles and convert them to a usable asset or cash.
Gift of Life Insurance
The gift of a life insurance policy is a very affordable 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 estate. MBCH Foundation staff is available to help you with the establishment of your estate plans. Go to the Planned Giving page for more details on this type of gift.
Life Income Arrangements
The charitable remainder unitrust is an arrangement by which you permanently transfer property to a charitable trust. The trust then pays an income for the life of one or two 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 monthly in "The Messenger" — the newsletter of Missouri Baptist Children's Home.
