For Churches, Ministries and Other Charities

Giving for Churches and ministries

Churches, ministries and other charities may choose to work with the Provident Foundation because we can use our donor advised fund structure to strategically engage your donors and reach the goals cast by your organization. With Provident behind your own charity, you can easily establish a charitable donor advised legacy fund. Your charity can have its own foundation-like entity to support your work now and into the future.

This type of fund - a Provident Legacy Fund - will allow your organization to:

  • Accept gifts of appreciated securities, real estate, registered investment accounts (RRSP, RRIF), life insurance proceeds and other non-cash assets from your supporters.
  • Recommend distributions from your Fund back to your church or ministry, or even to other charities.
  • Strengthen relationships with your supporters by opening up new and innovative ways of giving.
  • Accomplish all of this without adding overhead or staff.

We can work with your donors and their existing advisors to encouraging them to seek creative and innovative ways to continue their giving both while they live and after their death.
