“I am pleased with the growth of almost two million dollars of bequests (at current value) being designated to our ministry.

Here's what we know about estate giving in general:
If you take a Christian, committed giver through the charitable estate planning process, giving comes naturally. Giving through an estate is a natural extension of lifetime habits, except more impactful, as individuals can give through assets, not just cash.
At PhilanthroCorp, we work with our church clients' most committed members, and yet we have found that only 1 of 40 individuals had charity in their estate plan before meeting with us. This opportunity is almost entirely overlooked; it is tragic.
Conversely, after serving these members and meeting their goals, the average gift to our clients exceeds $200,000.
Below are some examples of work that we’re doing in churches across the nation:
|First Baptist Church Montgomery||01/09||$27,593,139||$3,486,651||75:1|
|Houston's First Baptist Church||09/12||$28,682,863||$17,842,818||58:1|
|Johnson Ferry Baptist Church||03/17||$2,718,766||$5,977,279||52:1|
|Brentwood Baptist Church||01/09||$10,177,640||$19,630||57:1|
|First Baptist Church Woodstock||01/16||$9,217,405||$3,617,812||71:1|
|First Baptist Spartanburg||05/13||$3,992,559||$529,817||27:1|
|Hunter Street Baptist Church||08/14||$5,444,813||$10,989,199||40:1|
*Studies demonstrate that a mature planned giving office averages costs per dollar of 8¢ - 10¢. The PhilanthroCorp actual experience over the past ten years is less than 2.4 cents cost per dollar created. Our proven strategy, marketing and donor service systems result in more than $40 (current value) of future gift per dollar of planned giving expense.
In summary, PhilanthroCorp offers a turn-key system from strategy and marketing to completed gifts. Let us tailor a planned giving program for your church today!
