Frequently Asked Questions
- Can I create income with my gift?
Yes! Advancing Native Missions has a plan for Gifts that Pay You Income. You can also provide income for a child, a grandchild, a parent, or a friend. That income can increase cash flow now and/or during retirement, pay for a college education, provide income for aging parents, or perhaps assist a loved one with special needs. You can also provide income to our institution by using a Charitable Lead Trust.
- I am unable to make a current gift, but I'd still like to support ANM in the future. Any ideas?
The simplest way to make a gift to ANM is to include us in your will or revocable trust. Gifts by Will are a major source of endowment support for us and each one is greatly appreciated. Each individual legacy contributes to our financial strength and ability to meet the needs of our missions worldwide. If you have not already done so, please consider putting ANM in your will or revocable trust. See our Bequest Language page for samples of how to do this. You can also designate ANM the beneficiary of Life insurance, annuities, or Retirement-Plan Benefits. You should always check with your financial or tax advisors to ensure you are maximizing your charitable income tax deduction.

- Can I direct how ANM will use my gift?
Most often the answer to this is “yes”!! Many donors direct that their gifts be used to fund programs or remember a loved one. We welcome the opportunity to engage in a discussion about the uses of gifts to ANM.
- How will ANM recognize my gift?
If your gift is a bequest commitment, or through life insurance, life-income plans, or lead trusts, you will become a permanent member of Legacy 24:14. Of course, we will also honor any requests for gifts to be anonymous.
- Why should I consider a gift to ANM?
More than 99% of missions giving goes to communities that already have Christian movements. With ANM, your donation is targeted at places where the gospel has not yet taken root.
Our local partners are rigorously vetted, so you can trust that your donation is invested wisely for the greatest impact.
