Planned Giving

Thank you! We can't say it enough. We want you to know that we care very deeply for the people who support us financially, who introduce their friends to The Path, and for those who pray for us. We couldn't do this important work without you!

Since Congress approved special charitable giving rules early in the last century, supporters of ministries like The Path have been able to accomplish many things beyond simply writing a check.

For some, the ability to unlock appreciation in their homes or investments have made it possible to increase their own monthly income, while leaving significant gifts to their favorite charitable organizations. Others have included charitable gift planning in how they provide for their families. There are lots of options available to you.

Our hope is that whatever your desire, we can help you
learn about ways to accomplish your goals.
