Planned Giving

At Faith Friendship Ministries, your giving is vital to the success of our mission. In addition to direct giving, you can support us through planned giving.

Faith Friendship Ministries has partnered with Everence* to provide charitable services to help you explore a variety of planned giving options. Through gift planning, you can provide future support for Faith Friendship Ministries, while also giving you and your loved ones financial flexibility, potential tax benefits and even income for life.
