 LEAVE A LASTING LEGACY 

THROUGH YOUR WILL OR TRUST

HAVING A PLAN IN PLACE MAKES SENSE. 

Almost every adult can benefit from having a will or trust, regardless of a person’s financial situation or season of life. It is never too early (or too late) to make a plan that will ensure your wishes are carried out and your loved ones are well cared for after you are gone. Perhaps most importantly, your plan can be a way to honor God with the assets He has given you to make a lasting impact for eternity. 

Every year, six out of 10 Americans pass away without ever having prepared a valid will or trust. MAF wants to help change this statistic.

What others said about leaving a charitable gift in their estate plan

It wasn’t until Thelma’s death that Alan, the pastor of Rocky Mountain Christian Church in Colorado, discovered she had quietly made plans to surprise her church with a gift. Financial Planning Ministry had drawn up her estate documents where Thelma had designated Rocky Mountain to receive the proceeds from the sale of her house upon her passing. Alan remembers Thelma’s gift as “one of the factors that encouraged us at a time when we desperately needed encouragement. It came at a very important pivotal moment in our ministry.”
Pastor Alan, Rocky Mountain Christian Church

MAF has taken steps to make it simple for you to create a trust at no out-of-pocket costs. MAF partners with Financial Planning Ministry (FPM), a nonprofit organization that provides estate planning services including the drawing up of revocable living trusts. FPM has successfully assisted more than 40,000 members of the Christian community for 40 years, including many MAF staff and supporters. There is no cost to you because MAF pays for the service on your behalf. FPM simply asks you to consider leaving a modest percentage gift from your estate to one of their ministry partners like MAF. This donation will not be distributed from your estate until after your (and, if applicable, your spouse’s) passing. 

Find out how the Ellis family started their estate plan with MAF.

"I’m not a hugely wealthy man, so the amount of money I can leave to MAF in my will isn’t going to buy a plane, but if it keeps the plane in the air for a few days or weeks that would be wonderful because even one extra day in the air for an MAF plane could save somebody’s life."
Chris Tanton, MAF supporter
"The Nate Saint story meant so much to my dad. He impressed on our family the meaningful nature of that sacrifice. Dad thought money was the sacrifice he could make. He lived very modestly so he could leave as much as possible to MAF. I think that was a mark of his character and his passion."
Deborah Bingham Van Broekhoven, daughter of Glenn Bingham
