Ways of Giving
- Thrivent Choice
Are you the owner of a Thrivent financial or insurance account? BPC is eligible to receive your Thrivent Choice dollars. If you have choice dollars to allocate, please consider giving them to BPC. This is free to you, and benefits our ministry greatly!
- Cash and Securities
Gifts of appreciated securities may offer the benefits of reduced tax liability while furthering a charitable goal. To achieve this result, shares must be transferred to the charity.
- Real or Personal Property
Real Estate can provide a unique gift opportunity. Sizable capital gains often occur and an outright gift of Real Estate could result in tax savings. Capital gains tax is avoided if charity sells the property.

Giving Life Insurance may offer benefits and a chance to make a gift where other options are not available. Policies purchased many years ago may no longer be needed as originally intended.
- Charitable Gift Annuity
A contract providing life time income payments based on the age of the person(s) receiving the income. Sample guaranteed rates of return: age 75=7.1%, age 80=8.0%; age 85=9.5%; age 90=11.3%. The church/charity receives the principal remaining in the fund at the end of the annuitant’s life.
- Deferred Gift Annuity
Similar to Charitable Gift Annuity, except payments to annuitant is deferred to a later time. This generates larger income to donor in the future when payments begin.
