Through your will or living trust, you can designate FaithTrust Institute to receive a specific dollar amount or asset, a percentage of your estate or the residuum after other designations are fulfilled. This allows you access to your assets as long as you live with the possibility of leaving a magnificent gift to help ensure that FaithTrust Institute endures and prospers.

An unrestricted bequest enables us to use your gift where it will have the greatest impact. However, if you wish to fund a specific area or interest, you can specify a restricted bequest. Please contact us before specifying a restricted bequest so we can make sure we can meet your intentions.
