Donating non-cash gifts
Did you know an estimated 90% of America’s wealth is in non-cash assets – yet the majority of ministries received less than half of their gifts from these assets. The reason is because they are not set up to accept non-cash gifts. Bethesda Home has partnered with Everence (Mennonite Foundation) to allow donors to gift a variety of non-cash gifts. Please follow the link to a wealth of educational information that may help you discern how you might build up God’s kingdom through generous and planned giving.
