Support The Firs
Since its inception, the ministries of The Firs have been supported and grown by the generous gifts of friends whose lives have been touched at one or more of our facilities and programs.
Today about 7% of our operating budget and nearly all of our capital or building projects are funded by regular gifts, pledges and donations. Each year hundreds of people give to our ministry as they believe the Lord is directing them.
While cash gifts are essential they are not the only way to give. Some folks make a bequest to The Firs in their estate plan or add The Firs as a life insurance policy beneficiary. Some name The Firs in their trust or may establish a gift annuity contract. Others give a gift of stocks, bonds, mutual funds or even tangible items such as property, land, automobiles or boats.
The Firs is a member in good standing of the ECFA (Evangelical Council of Financial Accountability) and goes through a full audit every year.
