Legacy Ministries and Believers Stewardship Services
As a camp, we are happy to be working with Believers Stewardship Services, Inc. (BSS), and Legacy Ministries Canada (LMC) to give our donors some additional options in supporting this ministry. Both BSS and LMC operate to assist believers in achieving sound Biblical stewardship, and to allow them to better support the Lord’s work. We have outlined below some options available to our donors through these ministries. For donors from the United States, the services of BSS can be utilized, donors from Canada can use LMC.
Donor Advised Funds
Galilee has established a Donor Advised Fund (DAF) at both ministries, and funds can be donated directly to these accounts. When funds are required for projects at the camp, they are released to meet the expenses.
Charitable Gift Annuity*
A Charitable Gift Annuity (CGA) enables you to receive a steady income stream during your lifetime with the remaining balance being left to Galilee upon your death. If you would like more information on how this investment can benefit you and Galilee, please contact BSS or LMC directly.
*This service is currently only available in the US but will be coming in Canada shortly.
You can include Galilee as a beneficiary of the proceeds of your estate. Both BSS and LMC provide a full range of estate planning services and can assist believers with setting up a bequest. Whether or not you give to Galilee, you are exercising good stewardship by establishing your last wishes for what God has entrusted to you.
One way that you can give to camp is through the purchase of monthly gift cards to places that you already shop. For example, a family purchases $300/month in gifts cards, $200 in Canadian Tire gift cards where they get gas, $50 – Loblaws (No Frills / PC), $25 – Giant Tiger, and $25 Starbucks (monthly coffee budget J). If they pay for it with their chequing account, 3% gets donated (you can also use your credit card for a lesser percentage). You designate where you want the donation to go (Galilee Bible Camp J). At the end of the year, you received a donation tax receipt. In this case, the family would receive a donation receipt for $108 ($300*12*3%), and camp would get a cheque for $108.
