During recent ICR seminars and a trip to Grand Canyon with Christian leaders, many wonderful people offered their encouragement and promised support. There were lots of questions, too, mainly about what they could do to help ICR. Here are a few ideas.
Regular Gifts. We don't have a "product" to sell, but yield our research and training to the Kingdom as a resource. Since you share our awareness of the critical issues, please contribute as the Lord brings ICR to your mind. If you prefer, ICR can make arrangements to debit your bank account each month through ACH. Regular gifts help us immensely.
Church Mission Budgets. The Biblical record of creation is fundamental to the message of the Gospel, and evidential defense of Biblical accuracy is vital in our skeptical era. ICR needs regular support from like-minded churches. Let us know how we can provide information for your Mission program.
Research and Project Grants. The technical requirements of research and the scientific apologetics of ICR have grown more complicated and expensive. The R.A.T.E. project continues and we are beginning the work for other major endeavors—please let us know what you would need to evaluate your participation in new projects.
Asset Gifts. Gifts of property, stock, insurance policies, and other forms of static family wealth can be gifted to ICR—usually to a mutual advantage. Occasionally, through a Charitable Gift Annuity or other trust instruments, an income stream can be created for a donor. Let us know how we can help you evaluate the potential.
Giving through your Will. This often overlooked gift is a wonderful way of transferring some of God's blessings when your work is completed here on Earth. ICR has been structured so that our work will continue as long as the Lord delays His return. Perhaps you are unable to provide much now, but could make us part of your "family" when our Lord takes you home.
ICR has prepared several booklets and worksheets that can help you focus your planning. Check an appropriate box on the donor envelope or call us directly.
