The National Christian Foundation (NCF) — is the largest Christian grant-making foundation in the world. It allows churches, schools and Para-church ministries to direct planned gifts of their members to a “community” foundation that serves as trustee and administrator on behalf of the donor and charitable beneficiary of the current or deferred gift. It can issue “private label” gift annuities on behalf of the church or organization. Individuals can utilize these services through their “Donor Advised Funds” (DAF). They name the DAF as the charitable beneficiary of their will, trust, annuity, retirement plan or insurance policy at the time of their death. During their lifetime they “advise” the foundation where to direct their funds. Their children can be listed to continue the legacy of the donor(s). Also a “charity advised fund” is offered where a church or organization can “advise” where gift funds to itself will go to selected ministries. The benefit of The National Christian Foundation is that it allows your church or non-profit to provide planned giving administrative services for your members without the high cost of setting up and running your own charitable foundation. They have multiple local offices and staff throughout the United States working with individual givers, their professional advisors, churches and ministries.
