Just as the Foundation assists Nebraska churches and related ministries with the development of endowments and other gifts of support, we also assist individuals in the development of their gift giving. Please keep reading for general information and access the links to the left for more detailed information on our services for individuals.

Planned Giving- The Foundation assists individuals with their estate and gift planning at no cost and with no obligation on the part of the individual to make a charitable gift. Individuals spend their lives creating income, accumulating assets, and preserving these assets through retirement. Planned gifts represents the final decision by the individual as to how they wish to have their lifetime accumulations utilized for the benefit of others.

Estate Planning- Some individuals know exactly how they wish to have their estates distributed and have made those wishes known through a properly drafted Last Will and Testament or other legal document. Others are less sure of exactly what it is they wish to have happen or how to best accomplish their wishes. While we always recommend individuals visit with their attorney, accountant or other planning professional, the Foundation can often help individuals in the early planning stages and in the area of gift planning. We have two FREE tools you may use to help make your plans:

From your vital statistics to listing of your bank accounts, deeds, life insurance, physicians, assets, etc. this handy booklet allows you to keep all your information in one place.

There is never a fee or an obligation on the part of the individual for our services.
