Answers in Genesis to participate in 2006 Combined Federal Campaign!

Steps to wise giving

We have many resources to help you learn how gift planning can be beneficial and how you can make wise and prudent gifts. Let us suggest a few steps that may help you in the process. At our planned giving site, you can find out more.

Answers in Genesis (AiG) has received approval to participate in this year’s Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), the annual fundraising program through which federal employees and military personnel can donate funds to the ministry by payroll deduction. AiG’s name will appear in the 2006 listing of “National/International Organizations,” published in each local campaign brochure.

Each year, federal employees and military personnel are given the opportunity to contribute to participating nonprofit charities and ministries by payroll deduction through the CFC program. If you are a federal employee or member of the US military (or have family or friends who are) and would like to support AiG’s ministry in upholding the authority of the Bible from the very first verse, please consider designating Answers in Genesis when making your pledge—and let others know about this unique opportunity. The CFC identification number for AiG is 10259!

The purpose of our planned giving department is to aid AiG donors in meeting their planned giving goals by equipping them with knowledge about the principles of biblical stewardship and about the various gift- and estate-planning tools available to them. We are working alongside individuals, families, churches and foundations to help ensure that the gospel message, based on biblical authority, reaches the church and culture of our world.
