Contact us at (888) 588-4325 or by email for more information.

Plan for your future while helping plan for the future safety and security of Israel and her people. The gift planning office is here to help you consider strategies to meet your financial needs while also making a lasting impact. Planning a gift may be as simple as completing a single-page form or it may involve a multi-step approach.

We hope these resources help you achieve your financial goals as you seek to provide for your loved ones and support the lifesaving work of The Fellowship, following the biblical commandment "to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—when you see the naked, to clothe him" (Isaiah 58:7).
