What we aim to solve

Many people have a financial strategy, but they don't have a giving strategy so they're missing opportunities and wasting money on taxes. At NCF, we help people create a giving strategy so they can be wise stewards of all they have and experience the joy of greater generosity.

Every day, our team at the National Christian Foundation (NCF) serves generous givers just like you with creative solutions, like-minded relationships, and an online giving experience like no other. With God's grace and provision, together, we're mobilizing billions of dollars for the churches and ministries doing His work ... around the corner, and around the world.

Instead of writing checks directly to charities or dealing with the complexities of a private foundation, you can experience a simpler, smarter way to support your favorite causes and multiply your impact. It's through a donor-advised fund, which at NCF is called a Giving Fund.

A Giving Fund, also known as a donor-advised fund, works like a charitable savings account. You give all types of assets into the Fund (cash, stocks, real estate, etc.), receive an income tax deduction at the time of the donation, and then go online to recommend grants to your church and favorite ministries. NCF mails checks to charities for you, and you can login anytime for an at-a-glance dashboard, a searchable charity database, and comprehensive activity reports.

You recommend grants to charities, and we'll mail the checks for you. You can even choose to remain completely anonymous or easily arrange for your grants to go out automatically on a recurring schedule.

The Giving Fund can act as a storehouse so you're always prepared to make the biggest possible impact. You give to the Fund in one year and then prayerfully decide which charities you'd like to support the next year.

If you're currently writing checks directly to charities, you're facing lots of individual receipts to keep track of at tax time. But with the Giving Fund, you can go online to print one single report of your entire year's gifts.

Thanks to your faithfulness and abundant generosity, today is an amazing milestone in Christian giving – $12 billion granted to charity from NCF since 1982. That's grant dollars that have been sent to over 63,000 ministries, churches, and charities! Together, we're part of the biggest Kingdom resource mobilization effort in the world, and it's happening right now. Yet most exciting is the big vision that's behind these big dollars: to see every person reached and restored through the love of Christ. That happens when more funding goes to more ministries ... so more worthy causes are equipped to do this life-changing work than ever before. From sharing the Gospel to feeding the hungry to rescuing the oppressed (see the story below), you're making an impact in incredible ways for those in spiritual and physical need. Your gifts truly count for God's Kingdom, and this is the day to count our blessings … because we've got 12 billion reasons to celebrate!
