Creative & Planned Giving

In addition to giving a one-time monetary gift or making a pledge, you can be a part of Bethel’s mission by choosing from many unique planned giving options. From setting up a Charitable Gift Annuity to transferring a paid-up life insurance policy, we’ll help you meet your goals.

Non-Cash Gifts

Donate personal property such as a piece of artwork, an antique, jewelry, or even a car or boat. You can also give real estate.

This type of giving provides you with an immediate income tax deduction without capital gains tax, while at the same time benefiting Bethel. 


By giving securities such as mutual funds, bonds, notes, or mortgages, you capitalize on national tax laws, which offer special incentives for non-cash property gifts.

Memorial and Tribute Gifts

Show admiration and appreciation for a loved one who has passed away by creating a memorial gift, or recognize a special anniversary or birthday by making a tribute gift in honor of a loved one.

These gifts can be directed toward the Bethel Fund, specific scholarships, or special projects. Leave a lasting legacy.


Help students make a Bethel education affordable by setting up a scholarship for any amount.
