  • Gift Annuities

    • Looking for a secure addition to your retirement portfolio? Wanting to do good with your money at the same time? Charitable Gift Annuities provide for a donor to receive regular fixed income payments for life, tax benefits, and the opportunity to contribute to the mission of ABC both during and after the annuitant's lifetime.
    • Annuities work by transferring cash and/or securities to ABC and then receiving portions of that transaction back as regular fixed income payments for the duration of your lifetime. Payment amounts are set at a fixed rate based on factors such as age and the original transaction amount.
    • Tax benefits can include the original transaction along with deduction of the remaining portion each year.
    • If you would like further information on setting up a charitable gift annuity:

      • Giving via retirement assests, such as IRAs or 401(k)s. These often come with impressive tax benefits.
      • Making ABC a beneficiary of a life insurance policy.

    • Create a Scholarship

      • Every April, ABC celebrates the grace of God in an Awards Chapel.

The problem is that there are more worthy students than there are scholarships.

    How does your gift make a difference?

    It is no exaggeration to say that ABC could not exist without the faithful support of donors like you who contribute to the mission of ABC. Your heart for Bible-based ministry training demonstrated through your monetary gifts allows us to keep costs to a minimum while offering the highest in quality education. Our staff and students are immeasurably blessed as they see God provide for their needs through brothers and sisters in Christ like you.

    The Lord’s provision was a lesson I learned from a very young age, but this lesson was going to be put to the test as I embarked on my college journey. As an international student there are many unknowns; one of the greatest unknowns for me was finances. I was starting college with the knowledge that I would have to trust God for every last penny. The Lord has provided through many different ways, the biggest being scholarships through people giving to ABC! I am so thankful for the Lord's provision through people I have never met. It is amazing how he works through so many different people!

    Kevin Gullion
    Over the course of my service at ABC, I have been able to personally witness the generosity of God’s people and am blessed and humbled by their faithful giving. I have also felt a sense of connection as I communicate about what God is doing here on campus and as I sometimes receive prayer requests and praises in return! Whether from a church or an individual, large or small, each donation makes a difference.

    -Kevin Gullion, ABF missionary since 2015

    Receiving the scholarship during chapel was a massive blessing to me! Going into my junior year, I was unsure of how I would provide the funds for my college tuition; however, God reassured me early on that He would make a path for me to return to ABC, if it was in His will.

    -Zach, 2019 Scholarship Recipient

    Karisa Clark
    Our ministry's supporters provide a continual reminder to me: this is God's work! He provides for it and he brings fruit from it. I truly look forward to the day when we gather in his presence and rejoice together over the harvest, like John 4:36 says. Thank you to everyone who gives generously!

    Dave Holloway
    We are sincerely grateful for the many donors that have partnered with us and our mission of impacting lives for the glory of God through camp ministry. The impact of donations has been instrumental for Alpine Ministries to provide the best experience for our campers in adventure recreation. Alpine through the years has literally seen hundreds of young people come to Christ. What better way to invest in the next generation as your donated dollars return eternal benefits?
