Gift Planning and Trust Services

Everything we have comes from God who blesses us with good things, and Jesus himself advised us not to worry about what we would eat or wear—yet we all struggle to maintain stable financial support for our families’ current and future needs, along with supporting ministries that help finish God’s work on earth. Gift Planning and Trust Services provides gift-planning options for donors who want to financially support the growing mission of Adventist organizations. We also provide financial strategies to ensure a lifetime income for you and your family. As we enter into a covenant with God regarding our personal finances, we’re confident He will lead and direct each of us individually to know how to use the blessings He has bestowed on us so His work can prosper according to His perfect will.
