Help us bless the people of Israel.

WHERE THERE IS A WILL THERE IS A WAY

Preparing Your Estate for a Lasting Legacy in Israel


A beautiful set of passages in Isaiah 40:1-5 begins with a call to Comfort, comfort my people, and entreats the reader to prepare the way of the Lord, to the end that the glory of the Lord will appear and all flesh together will see it. 

Planning a bequest or estate gift to Bridges for Peace is one way to comfort the Jewish people with practical demonstrations of Christian love, in answer to the prophetic vision in Isaiah. You may be able to leave your greatest gift, to “prepare the way of the Lord”, after you go to heaven!

We have listed some resources below to assist you in providing for your loved ones, save on taxes, and continue investing in Israel far into the future.


An “Eternal Tithe”

Designate a tithe (or tenth) of your estate to Bridges for Peace in your will. As the culmination of a lifetime of faithful discipleship, you will leave a true legacy that bears fruit for eternity.


Charitable Gift Annuity

A CGA is a charitable solution for those who have a heart to give but need a source of ongoing income. CGAs provide fixed payments for life at rates generally higher than CDs. We work with the National Christian Foundation to offer CGAs to our donors. View our brochure here.


Retirement Plans

Contribute to Bridges for Peace through your IRA, Keogh, 401k or 403b plan during your lifetime. Name BFP as a beneficiary of your retirement plan and avoid significant taxes.


Gifts of Special Assets

Make a bequest of special assets, such as:

  • Real Estate
  • Personal property
  • Closely held stock
  • Life insurance – make an assignment or gift of a life insurance policy or take out a new life insurance policy naming BFP as beneficiary.

Meet Andy Benedick: This is a recent picture of me and my wife Sarah with our oldest son and his new bride on their wedding day. Times like these remind me to intentionally plan to bless the next generation and to leave a lasting legacy of the faithfulness of God.  God promised Israel great joy as the nations bring their wealth to Jerusalem (Isaiah 60:5). It is my joy to help you partner with God as He fulfills this pledge to the Jewish people.
