While cash does get the most votes as the most convenient way for a nonprofit like Indigenous Ministries to process a gift and put it to good use, there are other gifts which can be used for the Kingdom. They are called in-kind gifts and include time (volunteering), services, food, discounts, vehicles (which we have a need for) stocks or directed funds. In fact, through the years, all of the above have been given to this ministry as well as clothing, books and office computers donated too.
Estate planning can also be a way to include the ministry in your future plans. Indigenous Ministries is a listed beneficiary at Waterstone in Colorado Springs. Waterstone (waterstone.org) is a Christ-centered organization focused on helping set up trusts, charitable remainder trusts, and giving funds. This makes it possible the donation of securities, business interests, stocks or other non-traditional assets to the ministry. As you look at leaving a legacy, consider including IM as we reach nationals through nationals with the gospel.
Can you introduce us to your church leadership? We’d love to meet them and connect our ministries.
Another way to help Indigenous Ministries is to sign up for Amazon Smile and select Indigenous Ministries as a beneficiary of a percentage of your purchases (it doesn’t cost you extra).
