We think everything we have should be used for Kingdom work.

Many Alabama Baptists don’t realize how many unique ways exist to accomplish this. From estate planning to charitable trust funds and beyond, The Baptist Foundation of Alabama gives you access to a range of options.

Here are some of the ways you can multiply your Kingdom impact.


A Biblically-based, comprehensive process allowing you to continue faithful stewardship of God’s resources even after you step into heaven. Legacy planning will help you provide for your family while also advancing the ministries you love and support.


A unique solution to make your giving simple, easy, and flexible. As an alternative to giving directly to charities, your contributions to a DAF have the potential to grow tax-free over time. DAFs are a great way to establish a tradition of giving among your children and grandchildren, as well as streamline the administration of your donations.


Fuel Great Commission work for generations to come! Create a permanent fund during your lifetime (or as part of your legacy plan) to leave a dependable stream of income to your favorite ministries.


Give a tax-free distribution from your IRA to qualified ministries, satisfying your required minimum distribution while lowering your adjusted gross income for tax purposes and fueling Gospel work (up to $100,000 per year for individuals and $200,000 for couples).


Gifts of non-cash assets (such as retirement plans, tangible property, life insurance, or crypto currency) allow you to increase your Christian impact while maximizing tax benefits.


Provide fixed income payments for life to you (or others). You immediately receive the benefit of tax savings from a charitable deduction, while also blessing the Kingdom causes of your choice.

How It Works:

  1. Transfer your cash to The Baptist Foundation of Alabama.
  2. We promise to pay you fixed income (with rates based on your age) for the rest of your life.
  3. Upon your death, the balance goes to a ministry of your choosing. Payout rates are from 5.2% to 9% depending on one’s age.


Support the missions you admire while enjoying a tax deduction and retaining an income stream for your lifetime (or set term of years). Ultimately, the trust becomes a gift to the ministries of your choice. 

How It Works:

  1. Transfer your cash or appreciated property to fund a charitable trust at The Baptist Foundation of Alabama.
  2. The trust sells your property tax-free and provides you with income for life or a term of years.
  3. When life ends, the corpus transfers to the ministries of your choice.
