Estate Plans & Giving

Estate plans, like a will or trust, are valuable tools to make a smooth transfer of assets to heirs and ministries upon death. Do you have a plan? If yes, now is an opportune time to review and make changes. Have any additions taken place in your life through birth, adoption, or marriage? Have you experienced any losses due to death, divorce, mental incapacities, a handicap, serious injury, or health problems? These are important matters to consider when reviewing your estate plan.

A bequest is property given by a will or trust to a person, or a charitable bequest to a nonprofit organization, trust, or foundation. Bequests through estate plans are important gifts that support and strengthen ministries that touch people’s lives. Baptist Homes has the expertise to make sure a donor’s charitable bequests make the biggest impact possible. BHHM will work with a donor’s attorney and financial planner to provide specific language to include in one’s estate documents to ensure that the bequest is honored.

If you would like more information about wills, estate planning, or planned gifts, please contact a Baptist Homes advancement team member or complete the form below.

NAP Tax Credit

Baptist Homes & Healthcare Ministries has been approved by the Missouri Department of Economic Development (MODED) to issue $350,000 worth of Neighborhood Assistance Program Tax Credits to assist in the funding of renovations at our Arcadia Valley Campus in Ironton, MO.

These credits are issued at a 70% rate due to the economic conditions of Iron County and thus have a net value to Baptist Homes of $500,000. Renovations will include creating a series of efficiency suites on the second and third floors of the historic Riggs Scott Building. The Missouri Neighborhood Assistance Act makes this credit available to any person, firm, or corporation with business income in the State of Missouri.

This is a new opportunity for Baptist Homes to continue in our partnership with our family of supporters to bless the work of our ministry and provide direction to the use of their tax dollars. Tax credits are limited so please contact us today!
