Do you desire to promote charitable gift annuities to help further your ministry's mission and purposes?
The EFCA Foundation can help!
Your older donors are already hearing about this lifetime income plan from their alma maters, community foundations, and other charities. Now they can support your ministry in this way, too!
It's a gift that gives back!
As a national ministry of the Evangelical Free Church of America, we bring planned giving expertise and 100% "back office" support to EFCA affiliates and to their financial supporters. Local churches, camps, senior adult care facilities, and district ministries will benefit directly through charitable gift annuities. This is our service to approved EFCA affiliates. And, we currently offer this popular lifetime income plan to people residing in 49 of 50 states. Only the state of New York is excluded.

Gift annuities represent another method of giving that allows an EFCA affiliate to benefit from contributions and carry out its purposes. A person or couple who enters into a Gift Annuity Agreement with the EFCA Foundation makes a gift and receives fixed payments for life.
Following their Homegoing, the remaining value will be distributed to your ministry, following the exact wishes of the donors.
The EFCA Foundation will provide your ministry with marketing tools and a plan to help you promote charitable gift annuities to your members, participants, and generous givers. Those interested in benefiting your ministry financially will be able to make a gift and secure lifetime income.
The EFCA Foundation will work on your behalf with those who express an interest. We will provide rate quotes and information on a no-obligation, pressure free basis. We will accept the gift, provide the proper gift receipt, issue the Charitable Gift Annuity agreement, issue payment checks for life, and annually prepare and mail 1099 tax forms. We will ensure 100% compliance to various state regulations and reserve requirements. The Gift Annuity Agreements would be between the EFCA Foundation and the CGA participants.
We comply with the standards and best practices set by the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA). We also maintain donor confidentiality. We leave it to donors to notify you of their plans to leave funds to any and all EFCA affiliate ministries.
