PLaNNED GIVING

Anyone can leave a long-term legacy of hope. You don’t have to be wealthy to make a significant gift to Friends Ministries. Planned Giving is a form of charitable giving that involves contributing one’s assets through wills and estate plans, while providing financial and tax benefits to the donor.

A Planned Gift

  • Is a future gift to enhance the work of the Friends Ministries.
  • Is a wonderful way to leave a lasting legacy in your name.
  • Allows you to enjoy your gift now, while transferring the funds later, after your lifetime.
  • Ensures that our doors stay open at all hours for every client that needs our services.

From simply remembering Friends Ministries in your will, to gifts of life insurance or retirement plan deisignation, to setting up more specialized gift mechanisms such as charitable remainder trusts, there are many ways to make a planned gift.

It’s never too late or too early to start planning. Let us help you find the planned giving opportunity that is right for you.

Please contact Josh Paske at 229-243-1298 or josh@friendsministriesga.org to receive our planned giving informational packet and learn more about this unique giving opportunity.

If you are already considering a planned gift to Friends Ministries, we would be happy to meet with you and your attorney/financial advisor to answer questions you may have about how your gift can ensure our doors remain open to our community’s most vulnerable residents far into the future.

Friends Ministries cannot provide direct legal or financial advice related to planned giving, and advises all individuals to seek independent counsel from qualified estate planning attorneys and wealth managers before making a decision on a planned gift.
