Other Ways to Give 

Recurring Donations: Pledge a gift monthly, quarterly, or on a schedule convenient for you.  Your gifts add up quickly and provide vital sustaining support all year long.  

Honorariums and Memorials: Demonstrate your personal commitment to developing Christian Leaders who will change the world by giving a memorial or honorarium gift to honor someone special.  

Employer Matching Gifts:  Double the impact of your donation.  Contact your employer's human resource department to see if they will match your gift and complete the process provided by your company. 

Gifts of Stocks and Securities:  Gifts of securities such as stock are one of the most popular assets used for charitable giving because of the mutual benefits provided to the charitable organization and the donor.  

Endowment: Support the future ministry of Good Earth Village through charitable investments that provide annual support for many years into the future.  Endowment funds are carefully managed to protect the principal, which grows over time, to make increasing payouts to our mission. Contact Good Earth Village for details. 

Legacy Gifts/Planned Giving: Create your own legacy and give a gift that keeps on giving.  There are a variety of planned giving options, such as trusts, annuities and bequests that follow you to give today or support us after your lifetime.  Contact your financial advisor to find a charitable plan that fits your goals while supporting the transformative ministry of Good Earth Village now and for future generations.

Good Earth Village was built by individuals who contributed in a multitude of ways to create a place where all are welcome to explore God in creation.   They willingly gave their time, talent, and treasures to make Good Earth Village what it is today and will be in the future.  Good Earth Village would not exist without continued philanthropic support. 

We honor the many friends who, like our founders, recognize the transformative power their gift holds.
