Planned Giving

Welcome and thank you for visiting our Planned Giving page!

"Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions, and give to the needy. Provide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also." Luke 12:32-34 (ESV)

Planned giving is another way to worship God by our intentional giving. If you have any questions about the best way for you to benefit through a planned gift to American Baptist Seminary of the West, please call or email me at (510) 841-1905 ext. 246 or cmatthews@absw.edu.

I am here to serve you!
