Giving

Thank you for your support and your generous donations
At the heart of all of the BA’s activities is healing. Your gift ensures the availability of Christian Science nursing for those in need of care.

Ways to Support

Learn more about ways you can support the BA.

Sustaining Circle

Provide a foundation of support for the BA’s Christian Science nursing services and Training School by joining the Sustaining Circle with a gift of $1,000 or more per year or $84 per month.

Giving Monthly

Contributing monthly provides the BA with a steady, reliable income that allows us to plan more effectively and make the most of your gift.

Distributions from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA)

For those 73 or older, if you give all or a portion of your Required Minimum Distribution directly from your IRA to the BA (or other qualifying charity), you will not be taxed on the amount of the distribution and it will not be counted as part of your taxable income.

Qualified Charitable Distribution or IRA Charitable Rollover

A Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) enables individuals who are 70½ or older to donate up to $100,000 each year to the BA or other qualified charity from their IRA. You will not be taxed on the amount of the distribution and it will not be counted as part of your taxable income. A QCD can be especially beneficial for donors who do not itemize their taxes and instead file the standard deduction.

You can also use all or part of a QCD to satisfy your annual Required Minimum Distribution.

Donor-Advised Funds

A wonderful way to support the BA is by giving from your Donor-Advised Fund. Check with your financial advisor for more information.

Stock Gifts

Gifts of appreciated stock support the BA and help you avoid paying tax on the increased value of the stock and may reduce the amount of your taxable income.

Corporate Matching Gift

Check with your employer to see if they will match your gift to the BA.

Give in Honor

Give in honor or in memory of a beloved family member, friend, or special individual.

Please note: This is not meant to be legal or tax advice. Please consult with your investment advisor or tax professional to determine the consequences of your gift.

I’m glad to give monthly, because I know it’s helpful on your end for financial planning, but I also see it coming out of my account every month as a reminder to prayerfully embrace Christian Science nursing. And it’s a happy reminder that I’m supporting that activity!

I don’t have to remember that it’s time to send a donation to the BA, it’s just built-in. It’s there every month. …It gives the foundation of support that the BA can plan on, and know that it’s coming.
