Ministry Gift Fund (MGF)

Use a Ministry Gift Fund (MGF) to receive and distribute gifts to your church or ministry over time, instead of absorbing them into your annual budget. An MGF works like a corporate savings account with specific spending policies developed by your church or ministry to ensure proper stewardship. Use it to save for special projects or for legacy gifts.

  • All the benefits of an IRF
  • Contributions from multiple donors allowed
  • Donation processing and receipting for ongoing contributions
  • Quasi-endowment options

Ministry Gift Funds can be funded using the following:

  • Retirement accounts
  • Insurance policies
  • Last will and testament
  • Charitable remainder trust
  • Revocable living trust
  • Annuities
