Planned Giving Paves the Future

Leave a legacy that will continue to share hope and change lives

"Each one should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver." – 2 Corinthians 9:7

In his excellent book, Give to Live – How Giving Can Change Your Life, Douglas M. Lawson, Ph.D., takes a spiritual approach to charitable giving. An ordained Methodist minister, this nationally prominent fundraiser and management consultant proposes in his book that there are many physical, emotional and spiritual benefits received through the act of thoughtful giving.

While the physical benefits of better health and the emotional benefits of reduced stress are very attractive, it is the spiritual benefits that bring deep, inner joy. Following are the spiritual benefits as suggested by Dr. Lawson:

  • Greater connectedness to God
  • More receptivity to spiritual guidance
  • Added involvement to charitable activity
  • Heightened sense of appreciation and acceptance of others
  • Sustained peace of mind
  • Greater clarity about the meaning and purpose of life
  • Enhanced quality of life

It is our desire that this website will assist you in your search for the joy of charitable giving as well as help you better understand your various charitable-giving options. Some options provide immediate financial assistance to Christian ministries while others provide income to self or family first. All gifts should be cheerfully made by well-informed donors.*
